Fire by name and nature, warm and spicy chillies ripening through yellow and orange to red, many held upright above the foliage. The plants may be small but what they lack in size they make up for with their prolific harvest, a happy plant can have a hundred plus chillies (no wonder it has won a coveted AGM). And the chillies themselves may look small but do not be deceived: 4000-9000 Scoville these are medium hot 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. The plants are compact but prolific - a happy plant can have a hundred plus chillies, many held upright above the foliage.
EAT: can be used fresh (will keep up to 3 weeks in a fridge) or dried, or ground into powder. Chillies freeze well.
