  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: humus-rich, moisture retentive soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Hardiness: tender

    An early, very hot variety that produces dark green fruits which grow pointing upwards and ripen to a rich reddy-violet. These form on a compact plant with greeny-violet leaves

    Voted 10th hottest by BBC Gardeners World in the 2006 Hottest Chilli Trials.

  • Growing Instructions:
    Sow indoors - February to May. Sow 1cm deep in trays or alternatively two seeds per pot selecting the strongest seedling. Use multi purpose compost, to cover seeds. Plant out in a greenhouse April to June.
    When plants reach 20cm high, pinch out the tips to encourage more side shoots to form - and therefore you will get more peppers. Feed regularly with high-potash tomato feed once the fruits begin to form.

    Harvest: July to October
