A red bell pepper with a mid-range bit of heat that has a sweet and mildly spicy flavour.
Ideal for growing in pots and containers on a sunny sheltered site or in the greenhouse. Peppers are native to tropical America so maintain warm temperature throughout the growing season.
When left on the plant, fruit change colour from green to scarlet and ripen to deep red.
Great for using fresh in salsas or salads to give them a bit of a kick or roasted in the oven.
Advice - Pot on your plug plants into individual pots filled with a good quality multi-purpose compost and keep them warm and protected from cold and frost. Harden off gradually before planting out into their growing site in late May or early June (when risk of frost and cold nights have passed in your area).
Or buy as part of our Sweet Pepper Collection.
