Ordered these after reading reviews. Can’t comment as yet. Will sow February and hope for good results.
Delivery and communication was very good 🌶️
Firstly the positives:
Germination was brilliant, habit is great, self branching and no need to pinch, absolutely COVERED in flowers and attracted loads of hover flies into the greenhouse which I think helped keep the aphids away, pollinated well and absolutely tons of fruit.
The downside, I bought this variety as a hot-ish chilli for making chilli jam. I didn't realise the fruit is small (my bad, didn't read the description properly) but of the couple that have ripened so far in this terrible weather, they've both had the sweet flavour of a bell pepper. No real heat to speak of but would be nice in a salad for a pop of flavour. EDIT: I've just eaten the whole chilli instead of just the end and I take it all back, the pith is BRUTAL. Mouth and throat now on fire!
If you want something absolutely foolproof to grow then this is a good bet!
Seedlings are now appearing and look good and sturdy. Last years crop was good. Bit disappointed that the seed from last year didn’t germinate, so had to purchase fresh. All in all a good chilli plant that doesn’t grow too big, it produces lots of hot little chillies.
Sewn the seeds six days ago just waiting to see them germinate otherwise everything was good
Planted in coir plugs and 13 of the 20 seeds planted have germinated to date, there were 3 additional seeds in the "20 seed" packet so I have three more chances! The seedlings are looking strong, proof will be in the eating. Thank you
