Cultivation with passion and experience

Part of our cultivation is ensuring the ideal conditions for snack peppers and pointed peppers. More important, though, is the passion that we put into cultivating the tastiest peppers. As dedicated pepper growers, we have very green fingers when it comes to cultivating specialities. We know exactly what is involved to ensure the right balance between taste and quality – and every detail counts.

The season

The cultivation season in the Netherlands begins in December when we sow the first crop for the coming season. After four months of hanging strings, tying plants, topping, and turning, we harvest the first snack and pointed peppers in the Netherlands in March. The harvest then continues until the beginning of December.

With the Vitapep snack pepper, we can cultivate consistent quality all year round. To do this, we keep two sowing dates for our crop in the Netherlands, and then move to cultivation in our heated glasshouses in Portugal for the winter season. To complement production, we work with a fixed group of growers in Spain who cultivate on our behalf in the winter.
