Midas is a lovely munchable variety.  The compact plants fruit early and carry a huge crop of medium sized delights that are crisp and juicy with a warm spicy flavour. Mild heat up to 500SHU  Price for 10 seeds

 

SOW: from February to April, indoors in a warm soil in trays or modules barely covering the seeds as they need light to germinate (can take 10-21 days, warmth at 21C can help).  Water the soil, not the foliage, too much moisture will rot the seed & seedlings.  When they reach the 2/3 leaf stage (at around 10cm tall) they can be potted up. Wait until June before moving plants outside (harden off first) where they will flourish in a sunny, sheltered position on a south facing wall, in fertile, well-drained soil or grow bag or grow them in the greenhouse 

 

GROW: chilli plants are self-fertile and generally pollinate themselves you can help them particularly if they are inside (use a paintbrush to gently sweep the inside of the flowers, going from one flower to the next, transferring the pollen).  Water well and allow the surface to dry between times. They can grow tall so pinch out the growing tip to create a smaller bushier plant that will only need a small stake and produce earlier fruit.

After the first flowers appear, feed every weekly alternating between liquid seaweed & a weak tomato feed

 

ENJOY: fruits will take a few weeks to develop and a further couple weeks to ripen. Don’t leave them on the plants as this will slow down the production of more fruits.  Crisp and juicy with a warm spicy flavour that you can add to salads and more!
