Apricot

£2.00

A delicately-coloured, very flavourful habanero with practically no heat.

Heat level: approx. 700 SHU

Description

Capsicum chinense

Sea Spring Seeds’ very own almost heat-less habanero. The elongated fruit of Apricot are slightly grooved and measure about 25 x 60mm. They have an appealing crunchy texture and a wonderfully fresh, fruity aroma. As they mature the colour changes from a delicate lime green to a subtle salmon orange. The medium-sized plants are quite tidy and disciplined, and can be grown, with some support, either in pots (5-10 litres), growbags or the ground.

The fruit are delicious stuffed or as a fragrant addition to salads, sandwiches or even drinks. They are a treat for cooks keen on introducing a new flavour to their food, and suitable for anyone nervous about the mouth-burning nature of chillies.

Highly recommended.

Heat level: 700 SHU (very mild).
