The Kilian chilli is a cayenne-like Indian chilli, producing thin pointed pods around 8cm long and 10mm wide. The pods will start a lovely green and ripen to a distinctive orange when fully mature, they are truly stunning when you see a plant full of them hanging from the stems.
When fully ripe the heat is a lovely medium heat of around 25,000 Scovilles so is perfect for your favourite curry, Thai dish or even Mexican Mole/Salsa.
The plants are very bushy and the pods will become numerous, the more you pick it will keep flowering and producing more pods.
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 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)
