Pepper (Chilli) - Black Pequin
This variety will quickly become a favourite. It grows to a meter tall and is full of solid black fruit that ripen to red. When the fruit ripens it becomes soft inside with a hard shell. This allows one to squeeze out the flesh.
Sow indoors from February 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.
