This pepper is our farm's favorite for pico de gallo and also a key ingredient in producing an amazing hot pepper ferment.

Growing Tips

Chillies will do best when grown undercover in Scotland.  Sow indoors into small pots or seed flats using a heated propagator or sunny window sill in Feb/March, no later than April.  Chillies generally grow slightly slower than Tomatoes so should be sown slightly earlier if possible.  Transplant into larger pots once true leaves emerge.  Aim to transplant into final growing location after the last frost.  Chillies do very well in pots.
