While it may look like a mini sweet bell pepper, the scotch bonnet chilli is a fiercely hot little number. It got its name, not from its fiery nature, but from its resemblance to a tam ‘o shanter – and it certainly didn’t originate in Scotland! Indeed, this chilli is best known for its contributions to spicy Caribbean cookery. Use it sparingly until you have a feel for it, or cook it up into a hot sauce that will leave chilli fans gasping for breath and begging for more.

  • 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.
