Chilli NuMex Twilight – 15 Seeds

£2.00

NuMex Twilight were one of the first truly decorative chilli plants I grew along with Prairie Fire. They are such a collection of bright colours, a little like a set of traffic lights. Rather than the usual chilli maturing from green to red, these start as a wonderful deep purple and then ripen to yellow, deepening to orange and finally to firey red. When you have a full plant with all the different colour fruit on it, its simply like an exploding firework!

The plant will produce a very high quantity of small sized chillies which are classed as medium hot (30-50,000 scovilles) but be warned they do tend to pack a punch.

Sow a few seeds into a tray in late January to May and cover lightly with seed compost.  Either use a heated propagator or pop the seed tray into an enclosed plastic bag and seal and place on a windowsill.  Once the seedling has produced two true leaves (second set of leaves) they can be transplanted into individual pots.  Try and maintain around 20-25 degrees while young plants.

As the plant grows, transplant into as large a pot as allows, this will determine the size of the plant.  Once the plant has flowered and has started to produce small chillies, it will benefit from a feed of either comfrey tea or tomato feed.  Chillies dislike irregular watering as this will sometimes cause blossom end rot (the base of the chilli/pepper rots)
