Pepper Chilli Fresno Mix F1
Pepper Chilli Fresno Mix F1 Hybrid. Popular 3 chili pepper mix. Early to flower, set and ripen. Chilis grow pointing upwards unlike jalapeno chili peppers.
Increasingly popular for their many culinary uses, fresh and cooked, the three exciting chili peppers which make up our Chili Pepper Fresno Mix produce dark green fruit which ripen to red, orange and yellow, making these chili plants a fantastically attractive and productive choice wherever you plant them! Early to flower, set and ripen, the chilis unusually grow point up unlike other jalapenos and are generally broader, thinner walled and slightly hotter than jalapenos when fully ripe. The conical, tapering fruit which measure about 3cm across and 7cm in length, weigh on average 18g each. Chili Pepper Fresno plants are of medium height – about 75cm – with an upright habit and as such, may require cane support. Mix consists of red, orange and yellow.
March – April
July – October
How to sow
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 18-25C (64-77F) until after germination, which takes 7-10 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 and grow on in cooler conditions. 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. Chili 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. Space pepper plants at a distance of 50cm (20″) apart.
