Pepper was selected as a fruit vegetable of significant interest to establish an EVA network. The EVA Pepper network builds on partners’ experience from recent or ongoing Horizon2020 projects LIVESEEDS, BRESOV and G2PSOL as well as the active ECPGR Solanaceae Working Group.
Activities in the pepper network include field evaluations for agronomic traits in various geographic locations across Europe as well as tests for important diseases in controlled conditions. Pepper accessions will also be genotyped to provide data accessible to association studies.
