Capsicum annuum

We have been growing Rooster Spur on and off since the early 1990s and have always been impressed by its productivity: in 2010, for example, we harvested over 2000 mature fruit from a single plant.  The fruit are very small (measuring about 4.5 x 20mm) and very hot (exceeding any other C. annuum we sell). They turn from green to red as they ripen and are quite late to mature. 

The plants have a short, bushy growth habit, so need no support as they grow. They are perfectly adapted to containers, performing well in both smaller and larger pots: the plants just get bigger and bear more fruit as the pot gets larger.

Approx. number of seeds per pack: 20
