CHILLI PEPPER – Hungarian Hot Mix

$2.95

Mild to medium hot chillies for an early harvest

Hungarian Hot isn’t as hot as its name suggests. Rather, it is deliciously spicy and very well worth adding to your veg garden if only because it ripens earlier than all the other chillies. You have a certain amount of control over just how hot your chillies get. Pick them earlier for a mild flavour, or let them ripen to get the full spiciness. You’ll also find that they’re hotter closer to the stem end and milder towards the tip. Enjoy them raw or cooked.

How to Sow

Growing peppers is easy, so direct sowing is usually fine, but for good control over your germination conditions, sowing in trays is usually a better bet. A light covering soil is all these seeds need. Then water well and only repeat when you see the soil surface starting to dry out.

How to Harvest

As soon as your peppers look big enough to eat, you can start to harvest them. If you want red peppers, leave them on the vine until they colour up. Cut them off with a sharp pair of scissors, secateurs or a knife to avoid damage to the fruit or the plant.
