Pepper (Chilli) - Big Jim
This is a medium to hot large New Mexican variety that produces pods that are 30cm long. The pods are a slightly flattened shape, and mature from green to red. The plant grows to a height of 60cm.
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.
