Our Feedback
I don't normally do this (perhaps I should!) but I wanted to let you know how pleased I was with the fruit bushes,etc. They arrived this morning and after undoing the excellent packing I was impressed with how strong and healthy the plants were. I have spent a very pleasant spring day heeling everything in. So thanks once again for your prompt and efficient service - I look forward to my first crop of soft fruit this summer and for many years to come!! Regards, Lynn Cadman

Not only a funny-looking but attractive chilli it's also great to cook with! Chillies have a 'sharp, spicy' heat to them, but this mellows when you cook with them, to give a fresh citrusy flavour to your dish. One of our favourites.

Many say that the fruits resemble caterpillars or worms in appearance and they mature from a pale green to a light yellow in colour. It's a member of the Habanero family and a fairly compact grower. Very high yielding.

Can be a bit tricky to germinate so we highly recommend a good propagator with thermostat so that you can set the temperature to 30°C and keep it there until they sprout. (don't forget to water them too!)

  • Habanero type.
  • Citrus flavour.
  • High-yielding.
  • Requires a static 28-30°C to germinate (and patience!) 
  • Heat Level: Extremely Hot - approximately 96,000 SHUs.
