Chilli Pepper Krakatoa F1 hybrid seeds - 6 seeds per packet
Chilli Pepper Krakatoa masses of upright pale green fruit, turning to vivid red chillies throughout the summer, and this variety produces an attractive and edible feature on a windowsill or sunny patio (if the weather where you live is suitable for growing chillies outside).
NB: We mention the suitability of growing chillies outside because some seed companies use phrases such as "Grow on a sunny patio" etc - and they will, but in many parts of England you will find that your outside grown crop is a fraction of the crop if grown inside.
Sow seeds from February to April. Sow seeds individually in small pots of seed sowing mix, 10mm deep. Place pots in a propagator or seal inside a polythene bag and place at 21-25C until after germination.
Transplant seedlings into larger pots when large enough to handle and grow on a windowsill or plant outdoors when frost risk has passed, 45cm apart. Water and liquid feed during dry weather.
Feed the Chilli pepper Krakatoa with either tomato feed or seaweed extract when the fruit are starting to grow.
Krakatoa chillies have an SHU (Scoville heat unit) approaching 8/10 which makes them very hot indeed.
