Ramiro®.....what else?

Sometimes original product names are synonymous to a segment name, for example Nespresso. That also happened to Ramiro, the long sweet pointed pepper from De Ruiter, which is experiencing a new lease of life after twenty successful years. Ramiro was the segment name, although the official segment name is Dulce Italiano type. "But," states Marja Vijverberg (Communication / Marketing Manager DOOR), "There is only one real Ramiro!"

Ramiro will soon celebrate its twentieth anniversary and continues to be successful. In 1996 this variety started out with a trial of ten plants, now in 2015 the area of Ramiro covers more than twenty five acres in Northwest Europe.


Healthy

Pepper is in the top ten most healthy vegetables, as is evidenced by a Dutch newspaper in an article of January 7th 2015. Within the pepper family, Ramiro stands out, with a very high content of vitamin C and Folic acid but also vitamins A and E. This variety proves that healthy and delicious go well together.
