Chilli Pepper Quick Fire F1

A super-fast, compact chilli pepper that lends itself to containers and successional sowing for indoor growing on even small windowsills. Chilli Pepper ‘Quick Fire’ is the fastest UK variety currently available, maturing in as little as 65 days from sowing. It’s an ornamental variety too, bearing conical chillies that grow with an upward habit and mature from green to red. Fruiting continues for up to 3 months. The fast maturity of this variety makes it suitable for year-round growing on a sunny windowsill or heated glasshouse by sowing successionally from January to June. A hot chilli with an SHU (Scoville Rating): 40,000.

Sow Chilli Pepper seeds on the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed sowing mix and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place seed trays in a propagator at a temperature of 18-20C (64-68F) for up to 14 days. Do not exclude light as this helps germination.

When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into individual 7.5cm (3”) pots of compost. When plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, transplant them into grow bags and containers, or plant them in well prepared beds of fertile, moist, well drained soil in a sunny position at a spacing of 45cm (18”) apart. Chilli peppers may be grown undercover in a greenhouse or polytunnel, or grown outdoors in a sheltered position in full sun. When growing chilli peppers outdoors, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days prior to transplanting them.
