Chilli Pepper - Hot Thai
A compact and productive Capsicum annuum cultivar which is highly ornamental. The hot chillies are excellent for drying and for chilli powder. One of the best chillies for growing in pots as the plants branch very freely, and naturally develop an attractive shape which displays the ripe chillies to great advantage.Awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
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.
