40% Increase in Brix Rating of Peppers in the USA

Published May 26 



The Kyminasi Plant Booster (KPB) technology increased yields while improving the size and flavor of peppers. After 3 months, the plants that were treated with KPB produced 15 to 20 peppers per plant and 80% of these peppers were fully grown. The KPB treated peppers had consistent shape and ripeness. The KPB peppers tested at 10 Degrees Brix, which is 40% higher than the average 5 to 7 Degrees Brix rating for these cultivars. The KPB plants were still blooming in September, which is at the end of the season for this farm. Art also noted that the KPB pepper plants had so much energy that they developed woody stems. This indicated that the KPB plants were transitioning into perennials, which is highly unusual for this area as peppers usually only develop into perennials in warmer regions.
