Capsicum annuum

An off-piste chilli producing excessively short but extraordinarily wide plants. They are only 14 to 15cm tall but a whopping 55cm wide, giving the distinct impression of an umbrella. Grow them unsupported in pots 1 to 5 litres in size, allowing each one enough space to spread out. Or you can put them in hanging baskets, letting the branches droop over the edge.

The small fruit are very hot and mature from green to red. They measure just 6 x 40mm and hang from the spreading branches. Though late to mature, Umbrella’s eccentricity alone makes this variety worth growing.

Heat level: very hot (approx. 73,000 SHU)
