Description

Capsicum annuum

This is a Japanese type of sweet pepper producing small fruit that are harvested young and eaten whole. Pick the fruit when they are 5 to 7cm long – they should be green and tender, with seeds that are soft and pliable. If the fruit are left on the plant they will ripen to a red.

Plants quite compact and grow great in a large 7.5 liter pot. Cooking couldn’t be simpler: either deep fry the fruit in a tempura batter or grill them on a skewer with chicken.

Approximate number of seed per pack: 20
