Description

I've become a real chilli fiend and am addicted to chilli jam and jelly. If I have people to supper, I stuff the chillis with cream cheese, thyme and pine nuts and then griddle them for eating with your first glass of wine (see p319 Garden Cookbook). They are also fantastic sliced into any salad. This is one of the best, quick and very heavy producing chillies for our cool climate. The fruits start green (mild) and ripen to red (hot).

  • Mild to Medium hot

Care Tips

Grow in a greenhouse, in pots or in the ground. If planting outside, leave cloche in place for 2 weeks after planting to allow plants to settle in.
