Chilli Pepper Seeds - Fish

Capsicum

 “One of only a couple of chillies in the world that has variegated leaves and fruit. This pre 1870 variety will grow to around 60cm (2’), so is perfectly suited to grow on the kitchen windowsill. It has enchanting cream and emerald striped foliage, with 5-8cm (2-3”) fruits the same colour. The fruit will then begin to ripen to orange and brown striped, finally turning a deep ruby red. Listed as a food of significant history in the ‘Ark of Taste’, ‘Fish’ is the perfect chilli to use for any dish. Historically, this variety was used for shellfish dishes, with the white flesh being used, so as not to discolour the creamy white sauces. Moderately hot, local folklore states the angrier you are when you sow the seeds, the hotter the peppers will be!”

Using a good quality, moist seed compost, sow your seeds in a propagator and cover with 6mm (¼") compost. Place on a windowsill or in a greenhouse at approximately 21-24°C (70-75°F) to germinate, usually 7-14 days. Transfer seedlings into 7.5cm (3") pots and grow on. Once they are 15cm (6") tall, transfer to 25cm (10") pots of John Innes No.3 and keep on a warm, sunny windowsill or greenhouse (once warm enough). Pollinate with a small paintbrush by stroking all the flowers, if no insects present. This will ensure fruit.

Ideal for beds and borders, patio pots and containers.
