Description
Not for the faint hearted - this Scotch Bonnet/ Habanero type is volcanically hot! Originating from Mexico, this variety produces tall plants with good crops that ripen early. Chilli Pepper 'Caribbean Antillais' produces short lime green fruits that ripen through orange to a dark red colour, when the skins become slightly wrinkled. The flavour is fruity with a scorching heat that lingers. For best results, grow them in the greenhouse or a hot, sunny spot in the garden. Harvest the fruits when fully ripened and use them fresh or dried. Use sparingly to add an extreme heat to your favourite dishes and sauces. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow

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.

More Info
Feed and water pepper plants regularly throughout the growing season to prevent the flower buds from dropping. 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 peppers singly by cutting them from the plant by with secateurs or pull the entire plant when full of red peppers, and hang upside down in the kitchen for use all year long. Peppers grown outdoors must be harvested before the first frosts.
