Pepper (Chilli) - Facing Heaven
This is a medium-hot chilli, fragrant with a touch of citrus. It is most often used as dried in the hot Sichuan cuisine.
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.
