Description

This is a great chilli for beginners.  it is a lovely compact plant and can easily be grown in a pot on a windowsill. Small and ornamental and great for cooking.  

Unlike the well-known Birds Eye chilli, the pods on this plant are oval-shaped.  This is a fairly rare chilli in the UK.

Plant Care Tips

Sow a few seeds into a tray in 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 allows, this will determine the size of the plant.  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)
