Abstract:
Shading was investigated as a treatment to delay fruit development of sweet red pepper and to protect them from excessive radiation, in order to slow down the development process during winter in the Arava Valley, a hot inland area of Israel. In one experiment the plants were grown throughout the growth season in screenhouses (25% shade), while in the other experiment plants were grown in the open, and shaded (18 or 30% shade) only after the fruits on flowering nodes 1-2 were already at the green-ripe stage. The first method of shading postponed the time of fruit picking by about 1 month, and the second method by 11 days. With the first method, fruit growth and ripening, and with the second ripening only, were slowed down, leading to a larger yield of top-quality fruits. Growing under screenhouses for the entire season led to better developed plants, bigger fruits and a higher total yield. © 1986.
