Named after the Aztec ruler who was known as the ‘King of Cocoa’, this hot-chocolate-chilli is the perfect ingredient to put the heat into chilli-con-carne. The long, pointed, chocolate-brown chillies are sweet and spicy, each weighing around 15-20 grams and measuring 30-50,000 on the Scoville Scale. Best grown in a greenhouse or polytunnel, Chilli Pepper ‘Montezuma’ has a suitably regal stature and will need supporting, with plants averaging 100-120cm tall, although they can reach a staggering 2m in ideal conditions. Ready to harvest August to October. Height: 100-200cm (40in to 80cm). Spread: 50cm (20in).

Chilli peppers may be grown undercover in a greenhouse or polytunnel, or grown outdoors in a sheltered position in full sun. Pot up young plants and grow them on in warm frost free conditions. When plants are well grown transplant them into grow bags and containers, or plant them in well prepared beds of fertile, well drained soil. 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.

Thompson & Morgan strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3
