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.
