Chilli Pepper Jalapeño 
A cracking UK bred F1 chilli variety delivering a bushy growing habit of 30cm tall with a spread up to 50cm making it perfect for patio containers alike, window boxes or even hanging baskets. The plant develops a stunning, huge crop of small, medium to hot chilies (70,000-80,000 Scoville) which mature from deep purple through yellow and orange to a bright shade of scarlet red, creating a fabulous display. These chillies are perfect for cooking with and making lovely spicy sauces. Due to the amount of chillies that you will get, it is worth remembering that you can harvest and freeze them for use over the winter months.

Chilli Care
Your chilli plants will have been grown indoors with artificial heat and light to make sure they are as healthy as possible for you. This does however mean that you shouldn't put your chilli plants straight outside when it's too cold. The general rule of thumb is to start putting your chilli plants outside for a few hours a day from the middle of May to acclimatise them (bring it in over night or if a late frost looks likely). If your lucky enough to have your own greenhouse you can start planting a couple of weeks earlier, and if its heated, even earlier. Getting a well drained compost will work wonders for chilli plants.
