Russian Peppers

Eighth graders planted seeds of mini red sweet peppers.  This variety known as “Healthy” (straightforward, to the point) was developed at the Institute of Vegetable Breeding and Seed Production on the west edge of Moscow.  Students planted 2 seeds per pot, banking on at least a 50% germination rate.

Helpful Hint:  Place seeds on top of soil of all pots before covering seeds.  This prevents the question “did I put a seed in that pot?”

Watch for updates.
