Sowing Months Flowering Months Harvest Months
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.

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.

Just right for me 2016-11-24

I normally grow Jalapenos as we like chilli but in moderation. Decide to try these this year and although they are rated the same heat as Jalepenos, they have a slightly higher "kick" in my opinion. Well worth growing if you are chilli whimps !!

Easiest Variety Ever 2014-08-21

I have grown several varieties of chilli before, but these are by far my most successful and easy to grow to date. Planted seeds 2nd week of February 2014 in the south of UK. Grew under a happy light for the first 2 months and they were already way ahead of where I expected by the time I potted them out into 8 litre pots. By mid-April I was hardening them off and they were already in flower. They started setting fruit by early May which in my book is ridiculously early. Continued once a week feeding with high potash and occasional spray with a veggie friendly bug spray as unlike previous varieties these are mild enough to be tasty to pests. I let them dry out as much as I can so they flower more and then water heavily. First harvest was mid June and as of end of August I am able to pick 5 or 6 per plant per week and they just keep coming. I have 12 one litre pickling jars full of this years peppers already and am now having to resort to drying the rest.

Hot stuff! 2011-06-10

Very early and prolific, even in our northerly climes. Good sized fruits on manageable plants. Excellent variety.
