This unique variety of Chilli is as hot as a cayenne yet has a distinctly tart cirtus taste. A productive chilli plant that will produce an abundance of 5-6cm bright yellow chillies that will hang down in stunning contrast to the green foliage. The plants have a branching habit and are of medium height - approximately 45cm. Perfect when used fresh in tangy salsas but also a great addition to cooked dishes and sauces too.

Supplied as peat free plugs/9cm pots.

Height Up to 75cm (30in)
Spread Up to 50cm (20in)

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.

Feed and water pepper plants regularly throughout the growing season to prevent the flower buds from dropping. 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 peppers singly by cutting them from the plant by with secateurs or pull the entire plant when full of red peppers, and hang upside down in the kitchen for use all year long. Peppers grown outdoors must be harvested before the first frosts.
