Not for the faint hearted although fruits are small they are very hot. Often used in Carribean cooking
WHEN TO SOW
February to April.
WHERE TO SOW
Sow seed on the surface of a free draining compost in pots or trays and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite and place at a temperature 18-21 degree C until seeds germinate.
WHAT TO DO NEXT
Prick out seedlings when large enough to handle into 7cm (3in) pots and grow on under glass. Once plants reach 10cm (4in) high transplant into growbags or 25cm (10in) pots and grow on under glass. Feed once a week with tomato fertiliser after first fruits have set.
Seeds and fruits are extremely hot, handle with care and do not rub eyes during sowing or food preperation.
An excellent source of vitamin C and beta carotene.
