Who hasn't heard of this famous Mexican pepper? It is a mid to early season variety with hot, mid sized fruits. It forms a bushy plant and is ideal for growing in containers. A great addition to your Chilli con Carne and any other hot, spicy dishes!
- Growing Instructions:
Sow indoors - February to May. Sow 1cm deep in trays or alternatively two seeds per pot selecting the strongest seedling. Use multi purpose compost, to cover seeds. Plant out in a greenhouse April to June.
When plants reach 20cm high, pinch out the tips to encourage more side shoots and therefore more peppers. Feed regularly with high-potash tomato feed once the fruits begin to form.
Harvest: July to October
