Exclusive to the UK! Extremely rare heirloom chilli
Colour-changing chilli which goes from purple to peach to deep red
Similar in taste to a cayenne chilli but with a fruitier sweeter note
Exclusive to the UK - Chilli 'Buena Mulata' is an extremely rare heirloom chilli and a stunning ornamental plant as well as a versatile culinary pepper.
The slender, 8-10cm long fruit undergoes a remarkable chameleon-like colour transition, starting a beautiful violet hue, morphing to dusky peach and then maturing to red. The fruits can be used at any stage and are mild and sweet when purple. When in their mature, deep red stage, they develop a sweet, cayenne-like heat but with a fruitier punch, registering 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-90cm (24”-35"). Spread: 60-70cm (24"-27").
Height Up to 60cm (24in)
Spread Up to 45cm (18in)
1 x 9cm Peat-Free Potted Plant (KF1013)

Chilli peppers may be grown undercover in a greenhouse or polytunnel, or grown outdoors in a sheltered position in full sun. Pot up young plants and grow them on in warm frost free conditions. When plants are well grown transplant them into grow bags and containers, or plant them in well prepared beds of fertile, well drained soil. When growing chilli peppers outdoors, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days prior to transplanting them. Space pepper plants at a distance of 50cm (20") apart.

Van Meuwen strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
