Chillies and sweet pepper varieties
Fruit & veg
It's always a challenge, knowing what to sow and having the space to grow them.
What are you growing?
Basket of Fire
Pointy peppers from fresh seeds.
They are at the 'just growing 2 true leaves' stage.
Cheshire / Derbyshire border
I'm growing Apache & Spangles chillies, both at the 6/8 true leaves stage. I sowed them in Feb cos' they need a long season to get to fruiting. Spangles is a new one for me - with unusual 'strawberry' shaped fruits that go through a range of colours.
But I've still got frozen Apache chillies from the last two years. So I really only need one of each plant
I always grow Jalapeno and for something a bit more daring, this year I'm trying Hotscotch - a mix of habanero and scotch bonnet.
I've still got a few bags of last years Hungarian Yellow Wax in the freezer.
For peppers I grow Corno di toro rosso.
The first true leaves are just showing on all of them
Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
I'm growing two types:
6 x Corno di Toro Rosso sweet pepper
2 x Cayenne hot pepper
I've grown peppers before but this is my first time starting from seed.
