Interesting Facts


These chillies are some of the world's classic hot chillies, favoured by chefs around the world. These chillies are grown as much for their intense flavours as their heat.

This is a classic trio of hot chillies, essential to any chilli plant collection. They are all quite easy to grow if you have a greenhouse and good producers of hot pods.

Scotch Bonnets are commercially available but the difference in flavour between a shop bought pods, flown in from central Africa and a fresh pod straight from the plant is quite pronounced.

The Trinidad Congo is one of many chillies to come out of the Caribbean in recent years. It is a Habanero type chilli with a similar heat to its better known cousins but it is a prolific producer of quite large, ribbed pods.

The Peruvian White is early to produce flowers and quickly becomes covered with a very large number of small ivory pods, that turn to yellow later in the season.

Jamaican Hot is an increasingly popular plant, grown for its beautiful large, crumpled pods that are pretty hot with a distinctive fruity flavour with a tinge of apricot. Fatalii is a gorgeous crumpled yellow chilli from the Central African Republic. Jamaican Hot is a liberally fruiting chilli plant that produces gorgeously crumpled hot pods with a distinct hint of apricot. The Peruvian White Habanero is a must have for anyone who likes hot pods, they are hot, delicately flavoured and easy to grow.

potting on chilli plants

These plugs are already large and will need to be potted on as soon as possible. Your chilli plugs will need to be potted on into something around an 8cm, intermediary pots, prior to being transplanted into their final pots.

Most chillies are best suited to a 5+ litre pot but be a bit flexible here for giants or dwarf varieties. You can go as much as 10+ or more for really big varieties. Use a free draining compost mix to fill the pot, make a hole and pop in the plant. If you have an ordinary compost, mix with a little grit or sand. Firm down and give a good watering.

growing on chilli plants

By this stage an unheated greenhouse should suffice. This is obviously dependent on the weather. Chillies don’t like the cold and shouldn’t be left unprotected if the temperature is going to go down below 10oC. If you are quick off the mark and have your chillies arriving in March, keep indoors or in a heated greenhouse until the risk of frost has passed.

Chilli plants do not like sitting in wet soil, so keep it moist but not over-wet. Feed with a seaweed feed or dedicated chilli feed at the suggested rate. Keep an eye out for any pests or problems. These are best dealt with early on. Prevention is obviously better than cure, so keep plants well spaced and well ventilated. Remove any dead leaves or rotting plant material.

In the summer months, hardier chillies can be placed outside in a sheltered spot or on a warm patio. Acclimatize them slowly, bringing them in at night for the first week or whenever the temperature threatens to drop. Chinense varieties prefer the shelter of a greenhouse and will not flourish outside. Use a cane to support the plants as they grow if necessary.
