The main objective of our research work consists of determining the particular plant density suitable for spice pepper hybrids and of elaborating the trellis system and the pruning method. It is also among the aims to adjust the unheated greenhouse production technology of green pepper to the demands of spice pepper plants having a strongly different habit and to the harvestibility of biologically mature fruits. We studied the effect of picking frequency and trellis type on yields and fruit quality. Containers were arranged in twin rows (90+60x32 cm plant spacing) and stems were trained vertically. Four independent replications were used. Plants had two stems and 4 of them were planted on each m2 . The highest yield, both in terms of fruit number and weight, was produced by the treatment, harvested in two week intervals. In terms of average fruit weight, the higher fruit weights were produced by the harvests with two week intervals.
