Suttons Pepper Chilli Seeds - Longhorn F1 - Pack of 12
The Longhorn is a long chilli (15-25cm) with a distinct 'curl' at the end. A cayenne variety, plants will yield copious amounts of spicy fruits. These chillies can withstand intense heat/sun without damage to the fruit. Seriously productive 100cm plants may need a little support with the weight of all the fruit.
Harvesting from July through to October, plants will reach heights 91-100cm (36-39"); spread 61-70cm (24-28"). The Longhorn weighs in at an impressive 15-20,000 SHU, so if you prefer chillies with flavour and not much heat, then this variety is perfect!
Chilli plants can be grown on a patio or in a greenhouse, the must-have addition to any vegetable garden or allotment.
Using a good quality, moist seed compost, sow your seeds in a propagator and cover with 6mm (¼") compost. Place on a windowsill or in a greenhouse at approximately 21-24°C (70-75°F) to germinate, usually 7-14 days. Transfer seedlings into 7.5cm (3") pots and grow on. Once they are 15cm (6") tall, transfer to 25cm (10") pots of John Innes No.3 and keep on a warm, sunny windowsill or greenhouse (once warm enough).
