Chilli Pepper – Firecracker (Autumn)
Packs a punch but with an amazing fruit flavour
Firecracker is a compact chilli plant that forms clusters of small, bright, multi-coloured fruits, that always turn red when fully ripe. As the name suggests, this is one of our hottest chillies. They have a good kick but the amazing fruity flavour is never overpowered by the heat. The fruits grow to approximately 9-10cm in length.
Number of plants: 1 potted in an 8.5cm bio-pot
Variety: Firecracker (organic*)
How hot? Hot
Delivery Info: Available to order now for delivery in September and October. Please see FAQs for up-to-date delivery info.
Planting/Growing Advice: These plants will arrive in 9cm biodegradable pots. They will be flowering/fruiting (or about to!) on arrival. You can grow them on in a heated greenhouse or polytunnel, or in pots on a sunny windowsill or porch indoors.
When to harvest: Harvest once the fruits turn the right colour and size! Keep picking until they stop cropping, probably in mid-winter. If kept indoors with additional light they may crop beyond Christmas.
*Transplants suitable for organic growing.
