Friggitelli, also known as sweet Italian peppers, are vegetables belonging to the Capsicum genus in the Solanaceae family. Characterized by elongated shape and bright green color, friggitelli resemble spicy chili peppers but have a sweet and delicate flavor. They are usually about 5-10 centimeters long.
Despite their sweet taste, friggitelli are rich in essential nutrients. They are a good source of vitamin C, which supports the immune system and promotes skin health. They also contain vitamins from the B group, vitamin A, and vitamin K.
Friggitelli are harvested and commercialized from April to December. For spring/summer harvests, transplanting begins in February, while for late harvests from September to December, transplanting takes place in July.
Transplanting in greenhouses starts in early February and continues until the end of March. The duration of the friggitello’s cultivation cycle can reach 9 months, while the maturation cycle is approximately 60 days.
Friggitelli are harvested in the field and transferred to collection crates at the processing center, where they undergo processing and packaging in disposable wooden crates, disposable plastic crates, and/or reusable plastic crates, trays, or bags according to customer requirements.
