An old and dependable chilli that – for good reason – has many loyal followers. The reason for such loyalty is that this variety is as easy to grow and as productive as a chilli plant can be.

The attractive plants are early to mature and have a compact, tidy growth habit that makes them ideal for growing in both large and small pots, and even look good in hanging baskets.

The fruit start green and ripen to a rich red. They hang downwards like pendulems, and measure about 4-5cm long and 1cm wide. The fruit are hot and thin fleshed, which means they are good for drying.  

If you have little experience with growing chillies this is a good variety to start with.
