Tasmanian capsicums are very sweet, firm and full of flavour.
Capsicums are grown in protected cropping greenhouses in Tasmania largely on the North West Coast where the climate is mild, summer daylight hours are long and there is relatively low humidity. Capsicums grow slowly in the summer months and develop good crispness and flavour.
Tasmania is a small producer of capsicums contributing about 2% of the $197 million in value of national production.
Tasmania also grows eggplants and tomatoes in protected cropping structures which largely supply the local market.
Being a remote island surrounded by water and aided by a robust biosecurity system, Tasmania remains free from many plant-related pests and diseases including Queensland fruit fly and Mediterranean fruit fly. This freedom means our produce can be exported with minimal, if any, phytosanitary treatment.
Tasmanian capsicums are grown predominantly in the Central North West region of the state.
Tasmania’s relative pest free status offers trade opportunities for importing countries seeking access to Tasmanian grown produce.
