Half hardy Annual

Description – Early to flower and set fruit, this chili boasts a unique flavour – tart and citrusy like a lemon, but with the heat of a cayenne. Branching plants are of medium height (45cm) and produce plenty of pendulous, tender-skinned fruits, 5-6cm long, which turn from green to yellow as they ripen.

Sowing – Place seed on the surface of a free-draining compost and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator at 25-30C (77-86F) for up to 30 days. Reduce to 20C (68F) once germinated and maintain a minimum of 15C (59F) after pricking out. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots.

Growing – For Indoor Crops: Plant 2 plants per growbag or individually into 20cm (8in) pots or 2 litre pots. Plant height up to 45cm (18n) with a branching habit. For Outdoor Crops: Gradually acclimatise plants to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting 30cm (8in) or 2 litre pot, or a larger container on the patio. Plant in final situation from early June once frost risk has passed and protect from biting winds. Feed plants weekly with a high potash tomato fertiliser once first fruits have set.

Harvest – July to October
