(Capsicum chinense ‘7 Pod Yellow’)
Heat Rating out of 10: 10+
A very hot chilli (800,000SHU) on a tall shrub that can yield 4kg of fresh fruit per plant during the warmer months. Each fruit is about 25 grams and should do 7 pots of chilli.
Basil, (holy, lemon, lime and green ruffles), garlic, ginger, coriander, lemon grass and cumin. All meats and most vegetables along with coconut, lime and lemon all go well with chillies.
Chillies form an integral part of many Asian and Latin American dishes along with some European, African and North American Indeed over time most cuisines have added this fiery little fruit into their recipes. There are many forms that vary in colour, shape, flavour and of course heat. Harvest when the fruit turns a vibrant yellow and handle fruits with caution. Makes great sauces and is also a good variety for drying and making powder.
Plant in a protected spot out of fierce sunlight and wind in a well drained but moist soil. May need some support when it ages.
Regular applications of Seasol and Powerfeed will keep the plant looking good and producing lots of tasty chillies.
