This is the variety we have selected on the farm. They have a good nature, producing a long cropping season. The fruits are best picked young (when light-green and once the fruit body is about 5cm long).

These peppers are traditionally picked immature before they have developed any heat. You may have seen the fruits in Spain or in Spanish Tapas bars; they are usually quickly fried in olive oil and sea salt and served hot. You can get the odd hot chilli in a batch and so they are often referred to as Russian Roulette chillies! 

If left to mature, the fruits turn a light red and grow to about 10cm long and 4cm wide at the shoulder - and taste a lot hotter.

Heat level: Heatless to very mild. Approximately 3,000 to 8,000 SHUs. Fruits tend to get hotter when more mature and if the plants are stressed. Learn about Scoville Heat Units (SHUs) here.

Harvest: Starts fruiting about 90 days from potting on as seedlings and under good growing conditions. Pick when the fruits are still immature. Fruits ripen from green to red.

Size: The plants can grow to 2m high and produce a perpetual crop throughout the summer provided you keep picking them. Plants will need stupporting.
