CHILLI GUINDILLA ROJA ~ this lovely curved chilli, growing 4-12cm long, comes from northern Spain 10 seeds
SOW: from mid April to end of May, indoors in a warm soil in trays or modules barely covering the seeds as they need light to germinate.
GROW: When they reach the 2/3 leaf stage they can be planted into a greenhouse or hardened off and put outside in a warm sheltered spot. You can grow them in the soil, in a container or in a grow bag. Chillies will be produced until the first frosts.
EAT: Pick this variety when green for the mildest flavour, as it matures it will be more pungent but even when fully ripe it remains at a medium heat with a sweet flavour – try this fried with garlic, gorgeous.
Heat measure 7,000-12,500 scoville scale
