For Christmas we were given a “Grow your own chillies” gift set that contains five types of chillies:
- Anaheim: green, 15cm long, mild to medium-hot
- Hungarian Hot Wax: pale yellow, medium-hot
- Demon Red: short and very hot
I’ve grown chillies before and they’re relatively easy to germinate and start off on a window sill but the difference this time is that the other half is having a go with this lot and I’m only offering up tips along the way.
The mushroom carton holding the pots wasn’t part of the gift pack.
I’m looking forward to trying some of these if they grow and crop, though I’m not sure what we’ll do if we end up with too many of the very hot ones! I won’t appreciate it if the labels get swapped around too, accidentally or otherwise.
