Chillies - Organic Growing Guides for Teachers + Students + Schools - One Pot Pledge

Chillies A chilli pepper makes an attractive pot plant, for a sunny windowsill or warm spot outdoors. The peppers usually start green, ripening to blazing red or even dark purple. They get hotter as they mature. Your first harvest will be around 20 weeks from sowing. Chillies can be round, pointed or ‘boxy’, tiny to quite large. They range from mild to sizzlingly hot. Pick green to encourage more to grow, or leave to colour up. Chillies can also be dried or frozen. A plant or two should be enough for most cooks. Suggested pot size: 15-20cm wide and deep, depending on variety. All chilli varieties can be grown in pots. Some to try: ‘Apache’ – small, pointed red fruits ‘Hungarian Hot Wax’ – starts sweet, gets hotter ‘Habenero’ – one of the hottest.
