Chillis 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. This is a medium sized fruit with a rough skin and a sharp point at the base. It is extremely hot and as such it should not be eaten raw and only used in small amounts in cooked food.
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. Do not over water during winter.
Regular applications of Seasol and Powerfeed will keep the plant looking good and producing lots of hot red chillies.
