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. 'Medusa' is an extremely ornamental variety, covered with long, thin peppers in shades of yellow, orange and red on a single plant. The peppers are very mild in flavour. The plant is perfect for growing outside in a very sheltered spot or even inside on a sunny windowsill.
