Care Guide

Good disease/pest resistance

Pepper plants can suffer from Red Spider Mites, Blossom End Rot and Aphids. This variety has good resistance but these are the common pepper problems.MORE

Water Often

Full sun in a sheltered positionMORE

Full sun in a sheltered position

Chilli plants need 6-8 hours of direct sun every day. If not positioned in a greenhouse or inside space then place in a position sheltered from chilling winds such as a south-facing wall.MORE

Rich, well-draining soil

A good-mix to use is three parts quality compost to one part topsoil.MORE

Feed Regularly

As soon as the plant begins to produce flowers then start feeding them every fortnight with a high potash feed such as organic liquid tomato feed.MORE

Not required

Put the tools down! No pruning required.MORE
