Plant details

Chilli peppers are the hottest kind of pepper. 'Firecracker', as its name suggests, has a very hot flavour. The miniature, globed-shaped fruits are 1.3cm (0.5in) long. They come in a range of bright colours on compact plants, making this cultivar suitable for small glasshouses, conservatories or sunny windowsills. Keep plants at high temperatures - generally, the hotter the temperature the stronger the flavour of the fruits.
