These little crackers will not take up lots of space, the plants grow to 60cm in height, but the chilies will have a big impact. You will have chilies at every colour stage between creamy white through yellow, purple, orange and finally deep red. They retain their fruity flavour while gathering heat as time goes on: between 50,000 and 100,000 scoville units. Price for 10 seeds
SOW: from 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, a container, a grow bag or even on a windowsill as the plants are compact & stunning with the different coloured fruits.
EAT: they may look ornamental but they pack some real heat when they finally turn red. For less heat pick them earlier.
