Description

Best-performing chilli in our trials, producing HUGE amounts of fruit over an incredibly long season. The fruit is big, juicy, and sweet, and if you remove the seeds, it’s not hot, so, like a red pepper, becomes multi-purpose in the kitchen.

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.
