The Bishops Crown Chilli is a moderately hot pepper, known by Brazilians as Ubatuba Cambuci and popularised by the two Brazilian towns of the same name, it also has other names such as Joker's Hat, Aji Flor, Balloon, and Christmas Bell.
The plant needs space to grow as it can reach up to 2m tall, but can produce a good crop of 50-100 pods and is good for overwintering. The plant can yield an impressive yield of up to 50-100 pods, making it an ideal chilli for those looking to store their harvest.
An additional variety of the Bishop's Crown exists, known as the Nepalese Bell, which is ideal if you can find seeds.

Sow seedlings in the spring in a sunny and sheltered area. Bishops Crown Chilli has the potential to reach 1.5-2m in height and should be kept in full sun with consistent heat for the best results. Germination can be on the slow side and take a few weeks.
Ideally, Bishops Crown Chilli plants thrive in a temperature of 20°C, with cooler-temperate climates best suited for a greenhouse or polytunnel. It should be noted that ripening takes an extended period.

Let customers speak for us
From the moment the cute seed box arrives at your door, until the seedling pop up to say hello...they never disappoint. I've purchased a few different boxes of seeds and know they'll not be my last! Thank you 🐞🌸
I already have baby craspedia seedlings and can't wait to see them grow. I bought a couple of craspedia plants last year and they produce the most lovely yellow pom poms. They look great dotted in three's around the house and I also use them when I make dried wreaths.
This was gifted to my mum for her birthday and she loves it. You've got everything you need for flower pressing, including all instructions.
Nicely packaged and fast delivery
One of our favourites in the range. Balanced subtle tones, good burn time and will definitely buy again. Matt

I am happy to give a 5 star review for Bishy Barnabee’s Cottage Garden Flower and Herb Box.
I loved receiving the beautiful package of seeds, with some dried flowers enclosed and not an ounce of plastic in sight!
All thoughtfully eco friendly wrapped.
The delivery was super quick and I’m working my way through sewing the seeds, on the monthly instructions contained on each packet.
I think any of the seed boxes would make a beautiful gift or why not treat yourself!
I’ll certainly be buying more as I expand my cut flower garden 🌸🐞
Another beautifully presented gift box of seeds delivered quickly and professionally presented. I bought as a gift for a friend who was delighted. I will definitely be back again.
