      Carol's Bird Chilli Seeds x 1

Plant: Hot chili pepper (Capsicum frutescens) |

A very hot chili. Great in casseroles and stews. Exclude seeds and pith for less heat in the dish, include for more. Tropical, loving heat and humidity, this plant will volunteer at several spots throughout the garden as wild birds love to eat it. The ducks don’t mind a taste now and then, either.

Carol's Bird Chilli Seeds Care Instructions

Try for a seed spacing of at approx. 1.95 inches (5.0 cm) and sow at a depth of around 0.2 inches (0.5 cm) if planning to sow direct.

Hot chili pepper normally grows to a mature height of 45.72 cm (that's 1.49 feet imperial) so ensure you have enough space in your garden for this plant.

Remember to water moderately.

Hot chili pepper tends to grow best in a soil ph of between 6.0 and 8.5 meaning it does best in acidic to alkaline soil.
