Dawn is a new variety produced by Sea Spring Seeds. The plants produce masses of colourful fruit that change from light yellow to orange and then red as they mature. The small, elongated fruit measure about 60mm in length and grow upright above the foilage, looking quite amazing.

The short, bushy plants need no support and perform well in containers between 1 and 5 litres in volume. When grown in 3 litre pots, they are about 25cm tall and have a 45cm spread. Their smallish size makes them the ideal choice where space is tight, such as a windowsill or greenhouse bench.

Dawn is the sister variety to ‘Dusk‘, a very similar variety (produced from the same cross), only with purple to red fruit.

Interesting factoids

The colour change of Dawn’s fruit (yellow to orange to red) makes the variety the perfect match for Dusk’s purple-to-red offering (also bred by us).
