Chili Pepper - Demon Red
Bred for growing on a windowsill or in patio containers, this variety produces attractive, very dwarf plants, for edible and ornamental use. The flowers and upward pointing fruits, which start green and turn bright red, are produced throughout the season. It produces prolific yields throughout the season, indoors or outside.
Sow from March to April. Place seeds on the surface of a free-draining compost and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator at 18-21C until after germination, which takes 7-10 days. Do not exclude light as this helps germination. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm pots. Plant in final situation when plants are 10cm high, 45cm apart. For indoor crops, plant into growbags or pots. Feed plants weekly with a high potash tomato fertiliser once first fruits have set.
