Magnificent, mid-sized, shiny purple-black sweet peppers are just the thing for adding colour to your cookery. Zulu Capsicums are certainly among the most attractive of the darker-coloured peppers loved by those who like their flavours sweet, fresh and mild. Depending on how long you leave them to ripen, you'll get some red too, but it's the magnificent, glistening eggplant-black that sets this sweet pepper apart from the rest.

  • 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.
