There are many forms that very in color, shape, flavour and of course heat. This variety produces large yields mild but tasty fruit that is great for baking, slicing and canning
Plant in a protected spot out of fierce sunlight and wind in a well drained but moist soil. Will need staking as it matures.
Regular applications of Seasol and Powerfeed will keep the plant looking good and producing lots of tasty chillies.
