    • Ready to harvest 1-2 weeks before normal Japalenos
    • Perfect for pickling or topping pizzas

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

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

Feed every two weeks with a good, all purpose liquid fertiliser for the best resultsMORE
