Pepper (Chilli) - Hot Orange
This is the chilli that should be grown in every garden and used in every kitchen everywhere. This plant produces orange peppers which have a taste of lemon. Every plant gives a great number of medium hot fruits. The plant is perfect for trailing in a pot.
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.
