Pepper - Cayenne Chilli
The plants produce a mass of small, pointed, bright green, pods which eventually turn fiery red. They peppers can be used fresh, pickled or dried. This variety is very hot and so are the seeds.
Sow from March to April, thinly in trays, pots or modules at about 22°C. Cover finely with compost. Cover with glass or polythene to retain humidity. Remove cover as soon as seedlings appear. When 5cm tall, prick off into individual pots, thin modules to a single seedling per cell. Transplant to grow bags or large pots when 15cm tall.
Sow from February to April. Sow seed on the surface of a free draining compost in pots or trays and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Keep at the temperature of 18-21°C until seeds germinate. Prick out seedlings when large enough to handle into 7cm pots and grow on under glass. Once plants reach 10cm high transplant into growbags or 25cm pots and grow on under glass. Feed once a week with tomato fertiliser once first fruits have set. Ready to harvest from late July to October.
