The most wonderful and highly productive chilli plant. It produces very long, thin chillies that grow to approximately 15-20cm long. It will produce a huge abundance of chilli pods through the season. The pods mature from green to a bright red when fully ripe.
They are an amazing chilli to pickle.
We love cooking with these chillies and find they have a distinctive similar taste to black pepper when cooked in dishes.
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)
