Price: £2.00

Capsicum chinense

The twisted, knobbly fruit of this delicious variety measure about 9 x 38mm, and mature from light green to pastel yellow. The fruit are very hot with a distinctive mix of both habanero and lemon flavours, wonderful flavours that really permeate any dish they are added to. The plants are extremely productive and have a compact, bushy growth habit that makes them ideal for growing unsupported in pots.

All things considered – flavour, heat, compactness, productivity – this is one of our favourite habaneros.

Approximate number of seed per pack: 15

Note: this is a fussy, and very unpredictable chilli to germinate. We have added extra seed to the seed packs, but even then only experienced growers should attempt to grow this variety from seed.
