Capsicum/Peppers are a long crop, so start sowing in early spring. We have divided our Capsicum into Chilli- or hot varieties and Sweet Peppers, perfect for salads and stir fries. All Chillies and peppers are great as container plants and add a decorative touch to patios and small gardens.
Commonly sold in the green stage, Jalapenos are at their hottest when a mature red. Pungent sweetish-hot peppers deliver flavour as well as heat.
