Chilli Pepper Machu Pichu F1 Hybrid Seeds

  • Catalogue Code 1020-2427
  • Pack Contents: 6x Chilli Pepper Seeds
  • Rare brown peppers
  • Plants reach 90cm (3ft in height – perfect for indoor growing
  • Medium-heat and smoky flavour

Enjoy picking the rare brown and smoky chilli pepper fruits from tall plants that reach up to 80cm (32in) in height. Every pepper reaches a good size and the fruits develop in big numbers through the summer and into autumn.

Medium-hot in intensity Machu Pichu gives an interesting kick to meaty or tomato sauces without blowing your head off! Indeed if you want to intensify the flavour they dry well when you hang them up.

Early to crop, anticipate peppers ready to harvest from July. With flowers on tall plants you can encourage beneficial pollinators into the area that stick around to pollinate other fruiting vegetables like tomatoes.

Useful tip:

From late winter get hold of 9cm pots and fill them with seed and cutting compost, suitable for seeds that are just germinating. The compost has just the right level of nutrients to see your seedlings off to a sure start.

Position three seeds 0.5cm (1/4in) deep around the edge of a 9cm pot. Water the compost then label and date your peppers for future reference.

Put the pots somewhere that gets 18°C (64°F) of warmth (a thermometer is a handy investment for seed sowing) and keep the soil damp but not waterlogged until your seedlings reach a size when they will happily fill a bigger pot. From now on every seedling will require a pot of its own to grow successfully. Transplant again into bigger pots by degrees as your tomato plants develop.
