Small, firecracker-red chillies borne in profusion make this capiscum a variety for those who love to combine the ornamental with the edible. They're on the hot side with a touch of sweetness and originate from India. Ideal for growing in containers, and even as indoor plants in good light, they'll give you a good harvest with potential for drying as well as using fresh. Expect a rainbow of colours as they ripen: cream, red, purple, and everything in between!

  • 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.
