Capsicum baccatum, A Nice 'Low-Heat' Chilli with a Sweet Flavour, An attractive Brazilian variety with pretty conical, almost strawberry-shaped, multi-coloured Chillies which ripen from light purple through white, to orange and finally a vibrant rosy red. Not only ornamental but also highly productive, this offers mild heat and a sweet background flavour for picking and eating right off the bush or as a great tasting sauce. With so many chillies in ripening motion, It tends to be a bit late ripening, so really benefits from an early start (Feb / Mar). Scoville Rating: 500 to 1000, Height: 75cm (30"), Seed Count Approx - 15 avg
SOWING - Chillies require a long, warm growing season.
