Grow your own chillies with this fun kit and look forward to adding some home-grown flavour and heat to your cooking!
Everything you need to get started is in the bright red fire bucket, including compost and a packet of 'Red Demon' chilli seeds. It makes an ideal gift.
'Red Demon' is a top-performing dwarf chilli variety that holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit, so you can be sure of superb results. Just follow the instructions and your seeds will germinate and grow into attractive, compact plants, which will produce an abundance of small, upright chillies.
These chillies can be grown on a warm, sunny patio, but for best results, place on a windowsill or in a greenhouse or conservatory where they can produce about 100 small chillies. Ready from July, pick some while they are still green to encourage further flowering and fruiting.
These green chillis will make a delicious ingredient in your cooking and as the remaining chillies mature to orange and then red, their flavour and heat will intensify – so leave them on the plant for as long as you dare. Measured in Scoville Heat Units (SHU), ‘Red Demon’ chillies come in at between 30,000 and 50,000 SCUs, so they’re hot, but not overpowering.
Supplied as a metal bucket planter with compost and packet of seeds growing to a height of 35 cm (14 in).
