One of our favourite varieties.
Developed by those lovely people at SeaSpringSeeds.
A stunning example of chillies at their most colourful, Fairy Lights is a selection made from the ornamental variety NuMex Twilight. The plants have purple-tinged leaves matched by bright purple flowers that develop into small, cone-shaped fruit measuring about 12 x 25 mm.
These put on a dramatic display of colours as they turn from luminescent purple to orange then red. The fruit are not only attractive, they are also hot. The spreading, bushy plants are quite short, and will grow unsupported both in containers and in the ground.
One of the prettiest of all chilli plants in our humble opinion!
