Add some heat to your summer with a fiery crop of Chilli Pepper 'Fresno Mix' F1, perfect for eating fresh, adding as a garnish or including in cooked dishes. Three spicy varieties make up this vibrant mix, producing high yields of red, orange and yellow fruits. Not only do they pack a punch heat-wise (Schoville Unit 2,500 to 10,000), but they look great and have a superb flavour too. Similar in flavour to to jalapeños, the conical, tapering fruits reach up to 3cm across and 7cm in length, their most noteworthy characteristic is that the fruits grow pointed end upwards instead of down. Also, they’re generally broader, thinner skinned and slightly hotter than a jalapeño when fully ripe. Early to set and ripen, grow them in a sunny spot and taste them at their hottest when freshly picked!

How to grow chilli peppers
Chili Pepper Meter Information

1 packet (8 chilli pepper seeds) (KA7468)


Sow Chilli Pepper seeds on the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed sowing mix and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place seed trays in a propagator at a temperature of 18-25C (64-77F) until after germination, which takes 7-10 days. Do not exclude light as this helps germination.

When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into individual 7.5cm (3") pots of compost and grow on in cooler conditions. When plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, transplant them into grow bags and containers, or plant them in well prepared beds of fertile, moist, well drained soil. Chili peppers may be grown undercover in a greenhouse or polytunnel, or grown outdoors in a sheltered position in full sun. When growing chilli peppers outdoors, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days prior to transplanting them. Space pepper plants at a distance of 50cm (20") apart.

More Info
Water chilli pepper plants regularly throughout the growing season and feed weekly with a high potash tomato fertiliser once the first fruits have set. Taller varieties of chilli peppers may require staking. Provide a thick mulch of organic matter around the base of the plants to help conserve moisture and reduce weed growth. In greenhouses, maintain high humidity by damping down paths daily. Harvest chillies singly by cutting them from the plant with secateurs or pull the entire plant when full of red peppers, and hang upside down in the kitchen for use all year round. Chilli peppers grown outdoors must be harvested before the first frosts.
