Heat Rating out of 10: 3
A long thin walled variety that ages from lime green to deep red. The fruit can be up to 12cm long yet only 15mm wide.
Basil, lemon, lime and green ruffles, garlic, ginger, coriander, Vietnamese coriander, lemon grass, chives. Seafood, all meats and most vegetables along with coconut, lime and lemon all go well with chillis.
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 very in color, shape, flavour and of course heat. The long slightly twisted fruit are good for pickling and slicing into sauces and soups.
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
