Clusters of beautifully-shaped, mini sweet peppers look pretty and taste even better. Perfect for oven grilling, sliced into salads, stuffed as an elegant side, or preserved, these cute little red peppers also look pretty in the garden or as pot plants. Enjoy a rewarding harvest that won't require you to tolerate more than a pleasant, slightly sweet spiciness. As a side note, though the red colour is super-attractive, you can eat them green too.

  • Growing Information

    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.

    Nothing grew

    At first I thought it was user error as I have never grown capsicums before. But then I got a heat mat and was able to germinate other capsicum seeds, and still nothing from these ones. Not a single seed germinated.

    Sorry to say but only 1 seed from the packet germinated so I am disappointed with the result.

    None of the seeds germinated - very disappointed as I really wanted to grow these- will try again
