Sweet peppers are delicious and versatile, and now you can grow them as a scrumptious snack that’s wonderfully sweet and crunchy and can be eaten straight from the plant!
The peppers are green initially, before ripening to glossy sunshine yellow. Each weighs just 30-40g, a fraction of the weight of ordinary sweet peppers, 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 tasty, healthy snack.
A high yielding and 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.
