Pepper (Chilli) - Fish Pepper
The plant is incredible, with green-white foliage, and lots of beautifully striped fruits in shades of red, white, and yellow. This is a variety that came with African slaves through the Court West Indies during the 1800's. It gives incredible yields and has a pleasant heat that's perfect for fish dishes, hence the name.
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.
