An attractive dwarf chilli pepper with an exceptionally high yield of fruits. It an be grown on the window sill, in the conservatory or on the patio.
If you are looking for just one hot chilli pepper variety you will not be disappointed with an Apache. They need very little care and will always produce an abundant crop of about 2-4cm long fruits which mature from green to red. Picked when green they are fairly mild but if you wait for them to fully mature to a deep red, they are blisteringly hot.
Easy to grow and very hardy for a chilli plant. A good variety which overwinters easily without having to cut it back.
The plants grow to around 50cm high and can become quite bushy in shape but are a perfect variety for a windowsill.
