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

    An early, hot variety, that is quite vigorous. It produces long, conical, light green fruits that turn yellow when ripe. An ideal plant for containers, it will flourish on a sunny patio or windowsill. It is an incredibly versatile pepper that can be eaten young when still very mild, or left to mature to develop serious heat.

  • 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 a high-potash tomato feed when the fruits begin to form.

    Harvest: July to October
