Big Jim is a stunning variety, the largest new Mexican type with pods that can grow to 30cm long. However the plant will only reach around 60cm tall making it an ideal compact choice for a smaller space. This is one of the milder chillies that we offer at just 500-1000 Scoville price for 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. Big Jim plants will only reach around 60cm tall making it an ideal compact choice for a smaller space. Chillies will be produced until the first frosts.
EAT: can be used fresh (will keep up to 3 weeks in a fridge) or dried, or ground into powder. Chillies freeze well.
