These are very rare and amazing-tasting chilli, with notes of fresh salty apples. They produce pods around 3-4cm and are almost square in shape.
The pods start a deep, dark purple and change through to green/orange and finally mature to a lovely translucent red, they can also produce stripes as they ripen.
The plant itself has very dark/purple foliage and lovely white flowers with purple tips. It will most likely need staking to support it as it grows fairly large and the fruit are numerous and heavy.
Plant Care Tips
Sow a few seeds into a tray from late January to May and cover lightly with seed compost. Either use a heated propagator or pop the seed tray into an enclosed plastic bag and seal and place it on a windowsill. Once the seedling has produced two true leaves (second set of leaves) they can be transplanted into individual pots. Try and maintain around 20-25 degrees while young plants.
As the plant grows, transplant it into as large a pot as possible, determining the plant's size. Once the plant has flowered and has started to produce small chillies, it will benefit from a feed of either comfrey tea or tomato feed. Chillies dislike irregular watering as this will sometimes cause blossom end rot (the base of the chilli/pepper rots)
