Peppers originally came from the tropics, where there are many different naturally-occurring varieties. All peppers start off green, and they develop their colour as they ripen. The colour that develops depends on the variety.
Initially only yellow, green and red peppers were grown in the Netherlands. In the 1980s a plant with orange fruits was discovered in a greenhouse, and since then this colour has been grown too. This orange pepper occurred naturally, just as variations also occur naturally in the wild.
Now, 30 years later, nature has once again surprised us with a natural variation: the red/yellow striped pepper. In 2013, Wilfred van den Berg found this beautiful variety in his greenhouse in Est. Together with Enza Zaden and 4Evergreen, in recent years we have researched the optimal way to cultivate this gorgeous pepper.
The pepper is now on the market under the name Enjoya. Try Enjoya and experience its attractive appearance and delicious taste!
