Description More Info Delivery

This rare heirloom chilli is a stunning ornamental plant as well as a versatile culinary pepper with medium heat and a sweet finish. Chilli 'Buena Mulata' bears slender, 6-7-inch-long fruit which undergoes a remarkable colour transition, starting a beautiful violet hue, morphing to orange-brown and then maturing to red. Mature fruits develop a sweet, cayenne-like flavour and register between 30,000 to 50,000 on the Scoville Scale. A highly productive plant which looks wonderful when packed with pods in their various colour stages. Maximum height: 60cm (24”). Spread: 45cm (18”).

Water chilli pepper plants regularly throughout the growing season and feed weekly with a high potash tomato fertiliser once the first fruits have set. Taller varieties of chilli peppers may require staking. Provide a thick mulch of organic matter around the base of the plants to help conserve moisture and reduce weed growth. In greenhouses, maintain high humidity by damping down paths daily. Harvest chillies singly by cutting them from the plant with secateurs or pull the entire plant when full of red peppers, and hang upside down in the kitchen for use all year round. Chilli peppers grown outdoors must be harvested before the first frosts.
