This is a Japanese type of pepper producing fruit that are traditionally 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. Cooking couldn’t be simpler: either deep fry the fruit in a tempura batter or grill them on a skewer with chicken.
If the green fruit are left on the plant they will ripen to a red. Plants are quite compact and grow well in 7.5 litre pots.
Approximate number of seed per pack: 20
