Number of plants: 1 potted in an 8.5cm bio-pot

Variety: Hungarian Hot Wax (organic*)

How Hot? Mild to Medium Hot (depending when you pick them)

In the kitchen: Whatever stage these chillies are eaten at they are delicious. They can be eaten raw or in cooking. They also make a fantastic chilli jam.

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.

When we deliver
We deliver these plants from May until July, depending upon the season. It is a little tricky for us to give a specific date as we do not use any artificial heat to raise our plants, so we are a little dependant on the weather.

You can order from…
These plants are available to be ordered and dispatched right up until late July, as the plants arrive as healthy young plants and will have already been growing for at least 2-3 months before you receive them, giving you a great head start on your vegetable growing!

Do I need to sign for them?
All our plant orders are dispatched with an overnight courier* to mainland UK and do not need to be signed for when they are delivered, but will be left somewhere safe. When placing your order, please let us know where you would like the plants left if you are not in when the courier delivers.

We will keep you posted
You will receive an email approximately a week before your order is dispatched and another on the day your plants are packed and leave us so you know to expect and prepare for their arrival.
