Chilli peppers are grown for their fiery heat. This is caused by the alkaloid capsaicin, which is measure in Scoville Units. Most chilli peppers, even though they seem to have a hot bite, are only about 600 units, compared to 'Habanero' which has an astonishing 200,000 units. They are grown in the same way as sweet peppers but the fruit can be picked at any stage, when the colour is green or red. 'Apache' has lots of medium, hot fruit which are produced on dwarf plants that are perfect for a patio pot.
