(Capsicum annuum longum ‘Bulgarian Carrot’)
Heat Rating out of 10: 3
A smallish bush with attractive carrot-like fruit that has a sweet flavour with a crunchy texture. Chillies originate from Southern America and were transported around the world by the Portuguese and from there many new cultivars were selected by growers across Europe.
Most meats, seafoods and vegetables along with coconut, lime and lemon all go well with chillies. Bulgarian Carrot has large distinctive fruit with a mild heat rating and great ‘crunch’.
Chillies form an integral part of many Asian and Latin American dishes along with some European, African and North American.
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.
