The famous Jalepeno chilli seed.. surplus seeds froms group purchase. Distinctive shape, essential in So many kinds of non English / Asian/ Carribbean/ cooking - I believe they are 2500 - 5,000 on the scoville scale ( the scale for measuring chilli strength - yes there is one 😂😂😂 so they are not silly strong. The scoville scale can go up to 1 million, but that is for the hardened chilli nut and the clinically insane 🤪😝😂😀😄😍😍
This is an early Jalapeno and they are said to mature in 60 days so you still have plenty of time. You can be looking at a late August harvest….
It is a little late to be sewing some varieties of chilli but you can still get results ` I did last year and i had NO idea what i was doing!!
Chillis are perennials, which mean that they are great value for money, as that little seed will produce a plant that lasts many years, so crop after crop for a couple of quid…think how much they are in the supermarket…
Easy to grow, especially if you have a green house, conservatory / sunny window sill.
Advantages of planting late: germination will be quicker- and possibly more plentiful as days are long and temperatures are higher.
You may not get a great crop (but you still can!)….AND you are WELL SET UP for next year. Think of chillis as a permanent feature in your life from now. Each chilli you grow is a potential source of more chilli seeds. You could have a chilli plantation in a few years….
Ten seeds is a good starting point, they will probably give you 2-3 plants with a couple spare to give to friends.
Harvesting. Leave the fruit on the plant for as long as you can, chillis generally mature in 75-90 days, then store for a while. In my experience (which is limited), a chilli straight off the plant has no flavour. Last year i tried one, it was horribly bland. I left the other one in my fridge for two weeks. Offered it to a friend over coffee explaining how disappointing my chilli crop was. He bit into it and it ruined his coffee, it was so strong😂😂
So they have to “cure”. But I am no expert on this…MAYBE I took it off the plant too soon…
YOU WILL NEVER HAVE TO BUY CHILLI SEEDS AGAIN :-)
Will be posted quickly by first class letter post
Happy chilli growing 😁😁😁😁
