They ripen to a brilliant deep yellow, making a fabulous splash of colour sliced into salads.
- Growing Instructions:Sow in a frost-free greenhouse or windowsill, potting on seedlings individually as they grow. Once all danger of frost has passed, plant into greenhouse borders or into growbags, or harden plants off and plant outside in rich soil in a sunny spot.

To ripen green fruits at the end of the season, cut plants away from supports, lay them on black polythene flat on the ground, and cover with a cloche to double the warmth.

- Approximate quantity: 75 seeds.
