'Fairy Lights' Chilli Plant

These spicy chilli plants produce small dark purple peppers which get hotter as they ripen and turn red. They are a vigorous variety and will do well on a sunny windowsill or patio. Great for chilli con carne, Thai and Indian dishes.
Current Description
This is a really unusual variety and makes a fantastic quirky feature on any windowsill. The beautiful purple flowers are followed by dark black/purple fruits that will eventually ripen through orange and yellow to a fiery red. They are currently looking really striking, with a good crop of young purple fruits and flowers. You can enjoy the chillies milder when they are purple, or wait until they turn red for a hotter flavour.
30cm+ tall in 1L pot.

These spicy Capsicum annum are easy to grow Annuals. With warmth and water they will treat you with fruit from mid summer onwards.

These plants love sunlight and will be happiest on a sunny window sill or in a conservatory.

Whilst plants are in small pots they will need regular watering. Water from the top and let the excess drain away. You can stand in very shallow water - but don"t let the plant get waterlogged. The top of the soil should be damp to the touch.

On warm days you can put your pepper plant outside on a sheltered patio and it will enjoy the fresh air. Keep up the watering routine and as soon as the autumn frosts arrive it should go back inside.

If the leaves start to droop and the flowers start to curl you know it is thirsty, so water straight away. These are annual peppers and you would not expect them to last over the winter.

These peppers are quite hot and are delicious in curries, stir-fries stews and Mexican dishes.
