Takara (Hybrid)

Pepper

Takara is a typical Shishito pepper with a small fruit and a mild but rich flavor. The compact plant has a spreading habit, short internodes, is well branched and has high production potential. The fruit uniformity is superior to OP strains. The peduncle holds well to the fruit.

Takara may exhibit some fruit that are spicy or pungent under varying climatic conditions, most often stress conditions like hot and dry conditions. This phenomenon is one of the distinguishing features of Shishito peppers.

Resistance Terminology

HR = High resistance: plant varieties that highly restrict the growth and development of the specified pest or pathogen under normal pest or pathogen pressure when compared to susceptible varieties. These plant varieties may, however, exhibit some symptoms or damage under heavy pathogen or pest pressure.

IR = Intermediate resistance: plant varieties that restrict the growth and development of the specified pest or pathogen, but may exhibit a greater range of symptoms or damage compared to “highly resistant” varieties. Intermediately resistant plant varieties will still show less severe symptoms or damage than susceptible plant varieties when grown under similar environmental conditions and/or pathogen or pest pressure.

T = Tolerance: The ability of a plant variety to endure abiotic stress without serious consequences for growth, appearance and yield.
