Chili Pepper - Numex Twilight
This variety is simply stunning as an â€˜ornamental edibleâ€™, with fruits that ripen from purple to yellow to orange to red, providing colour as well as hundreds of small, upright 20mm peppers. Superb in a container on the patio, the attractive dark leaves will show off the vivid colours of the fruits.
Place seed on the surface of a free-draining compost and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator at 18-20C 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 10cm high, 45cm apart. For indoor crops, plant into growbags or pots. Feed weekly with tomato fertiliser once first fruits have set.
