It is a super variety for growing in pots. A great ornamental but not great for culinary use as the pods contain a lot of seeds.
An attractive ornamental and edible heavy fruiting pepper bearing 2cm round very hot, purple-blue coloured fruits which ripen through orange and yellow to Red on compact 30cm plants with gorgeous dark purple foliage.
The small peppers are conical with a sizzling hot flavor whilst blue, and unusually for chillies they become milder as they mature towards a final colour of red.
The variety has received an “Award of Garden Merit (AGM)”.
