General comments

Space plants: 40 - 50 cm apart

Best grown in a separate bed as chillis need plenty of light and air circulation, they are small bushy plants with dark green ovate leaves. Most varieties need a long growing period to produce many fruit. T

Culinary hints - Chilli will freeze very well. Wash, dry, and free whole. Use them direct from the freezer (no need to defrost).
