Capsicum annuum

A dual purpose chilli that is perfect as an decorative house plant and a useful cooking chilli. Purple-tinged leaves complement the purple flowers that develop into small, purple cone-shaped fruit (12mm diameter). These then turn yellow, orange and finally red. The plants do well in pots, the size dictating the plant size; 18 to 20cm pots will produce plants about 30cm tall. The fruit are fairly late to mature, but the plants are productive and extremely attractive at all stages.

Approximate number of seed per pack: 15
