I,m looking for a chilli of medium heat and dwarf, to be grown in green house.



  • Numex Twilight is a great variety and very pretty.

  • I like Chilli Apache it's dwarf chilli that produces good yields on compact plants. I grow in the greenhouse and my patio.  The fruits are approx 7cm long and turn from green to red. They are good for use in many dishes in the kitchen, and have a medium heat. I pick  two or three strong plants after the last fruits have been picked and have good success with overwintering.

    I'll try yours too rogue housewife image

    Thank you,roguehousewife and CHERRY4. I,ll try both

  • I tried Prairie Fire, which I think was a dwarf one - quite small, hot fruits but loads of them.  So many, in fact, that I ended up using the glut to make Christmas decorations with dried ones!

    Thanks Orangeone,another to try i think.

  • Are there any "stir fry type" chilli plants which make good houseplants without attracting aphids or getting sticky leaves?

    Are there any which in addition are ok with central heating 4 the winter?

  • I've just joined this blog and it has given me some good advice; many thanks!

  • Sorry this has nothing to do with chillis. Is it OK to put some plants from my garden wild life pond into my indoor tank which has gold fish?

  • Pondlife? Try pond related forum in this section or go to the wildlife section! Try an aquatics shop/ pet shop with a fish section as they should know.. U need to identify plants 1st I would have thought...
  • Demon Red, White Habanero, Birds Eye, Chinese Fire Tongue amongst others are great. Some are not so dwarf like the Demon Red which is small, grows mini bullet chillies & the taste is awesome. I say these are mild chillies as my pallet handles the other end of the scale like Chocolate Naga Jolokia & this years trial of Trinidad Scorpion which are quite big plants. Good luck with your choice & growing season.
