    A mid to early season chilli with a mild flavour. They form on a medium sized, bushy plant that will thrive in a big container. The medium to long, flat, conical light green fruits, turn red when ripe.

  • 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 and therefore more peppers. Feed regularly with high-potash tomato feed once the fruits begin to form.

    Harvest: July to October
