Capsicum annuum

A product of Sea Spring Seeds’ breeding efforts, Dusk is covered in attractive, regal fruit that mature from a deep purple to dark red. The pointed fruit grow upright above the foliage and are about 6cm long. They are hot when red, making them useful whenever manageable levels of heat are needed.

The short, bushy plants can be grown unsupported in containers 1 to 5 litres in volume. The plants need only a little space, and are great on a sunny windowsill, small greenhouses or cold frame.

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

Heat level: hot (approx. 45,000 SHU)

Interesting factoids

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

Try growing Dusk and Dawn together for an eye-capturing show of fireworks.
