Growing Calendar for Chilli Pepper 'Aji Delight' - 3x Plants
Delivery: Late April to Early May
NEW TO 2017. Here’s a chilli pepper that’s not hot, but full of flavour. With a taste resembling Granny Smith apple this chilli variety produces a huge crop of of fruity chillis that are crunchy, thick-walled and a delight to the taste buds.
This easy-grow chilli from Peru Capsicum baccatum is becoming more popular with chilli aficionados for depth of flavour and not just heat.
Your plants come as three plug plants kept with a plastic blister pack giving a suitable environment for the leaves and root while they are in transit.
Remove the pack and water the soil so it is moist. Try to plant up in containers straightaway, and keep the soil moist. You can place in full sun so long as the plants are well-watered. Once chilli plants produce flowers, feed with a high-potash feed like tomato feed to encourage lots of flowering and fruiting.
If you cannot plant up straight away keep plants within the blister pack in a light position but away from direct sun. Keep like this only for a maximum of three to five days, after which they will need to be planted in their permanent position.
