Capsicum chinense

Short, spreading plants that produce oval fruit with a beautiful fragrant smell. The fruit are quite small (they measure about 1.0 x 2.0cm), but pack a huge amount of heat (225,000 SHUs). They go through an odd colour change as they mature: starting pale green they go pale yellow and then finally white.

We particularly like this variety because it can be grown in pots as small as 13cm to produce neat-and-tidy bonsai chilli plants. Of course, in bigger pots – up to 7.5 litres – plants will be bigger and produce more fruit.

Approximate number of seed per pack: 15
