Capsicum annuum

A long, slender Turkish cayenne measuring about 1.5 x 22cm. Though the fruit are traditionally eaten green and immature, if left on the plant they will ripen to a red,  when they are medium hot. Are excellent as fresh chillies, but are also suitable for drying.

The plants are medium tall and can be grown in the ground or pots 7.5 to 10 litres in size. They are loaded with fruit, so give them plenty of support to prevent them falling over.

Aci Kil is part of our Turkish pepper collection that also includes Rosemary, Turkish Dolma, Sivri Biber and Turkish Delight.
