Capsicum annuum longum group 'Medusa' Chilli pepper

Posted: 22 October 2013
Overall: I bought one for my partner, a chilli fiend of scorching tastes but found Medusa is about as hot as October in Aberdeen. It's more like a collection of minature pointy peppers than a chilli. That said, it is prolific and after harvesting a whole bowl of chillis from it, it burst into flower again and we're looking forward to round two. Considering I paid £1 for it from my garden center's end of year clearance and grew it under an indoor light, I feel we got terrific value. If I'd have laboured since spring however, I think I'd rather have stuck to either a true chilli or a bigger pointy pepper type.
