Pepper (Chilli) - Monkeyface
This pepper has a distinct taste and scent of exotic fruits like mango. Each pepper is about 3cm? long and looks like a funny face. The plant is bushy and about 80cm high, and produces medium-hot peppers.
Sow indoors from January to April, in soil 0.5 cm deep, in separate pots if possible. Pot on in late May outdoors either in containers as patio plants or in a well protected site. Peppers can be slow to germinate so allow up 35+ days. Compost should not be too moist to prevent the seeds from rotting. All chilli peppers are very sensitive to the cold.
