An amazing twist on the traditional sweet pepper ‘Snack Red’ will produce delicious snack sized peppers that are wonderfully sweet and crunchy and can be eaten straight from the plant!
The peppers are green initially, before ripening to a gorgeous, glossy rich red colour and they have thick walls which gives them a wonderfully firm crunch when eaten fresh. They’re also ideal in salads and for stuffing and grilling, and a great source of vitamins A and C as well as potassium and iron – a perfect, healthy snack.
A versatile plant, it can be grown on the patio or in the vegetable garden or greenhouse, and it makes a spectacular looking houseplant in a sunny, warm spot. Position it in full sun to get the biggest, sweetest crops of scrumptious miniature peppers, producing flowers and fruit month after month.
Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready for planting after the risk of frost has passed, reaching 90cm (3½ft) tall.
