Suttons Chilli Pepper Seeds Hot Rod
Approved Suttons seeds retailer
Packet Content 10 seeds
Striking variegated foliage
Medium hot heat
Excellent fruity flavour
A medium hot chilli pepper with striking ‘go faster’ stripes on variegated foliage. The stripes will change colour as the fruit ripens, from green and white, to orange and brown, and finally that hot rod red!
This chilli pepper has a delicious fruity flavour that gets hotter as the chilli reddens, so you can choose to harvest your fruit according to your taste.
Fun to grow and captivating to look at, this chilli plant packs a punch.
The chilli fruits are medium hot heat (10-12,000 SHU) and are edible at all stages.
The lighter cream leaves may crimp a little, but this is perfectly normal.
Harvest when cream to avoid discolouring a cream curry for that homecooked meal for friends.
If you love growing your own chillies, we’re pretty sure this one’s going to become one of your favourites.
Using a good quality, moist seed compost, sow your seeds in a propagator and cover with 6mm (¼") compost. Place on a windowsill or in a greenhouse at approximately 21-24°C (70-75°F) to germinate, usually 7-14 days. Transfer seedlings into 7.5cm (3") pots and grow on. Once they are 15cm (6") tall, transfer to 25cm (10") pots of John Innes No.3 and keep on a warm, sunny windowsill or greenhouse (once warm enough).
