Although we haven’t tried one yet to test how hot it is, the Basket of Fire chilli peppers have not taken too much looking after throughout the season. Although they have quite a long growing period (we sowed them back in January!) they have grown away nicely in their containers, just needing some water/a bit of liquid feed every now and then and a cane for support in case it gets windy!
We love how colourful they are – and so many different colours at the same time as they are ripening!
In fact, they are so colourful, we are thinking about having them in containers at either side of our front door next year! They are colourful the whole growing season – green foliage to begin with, then yellow chillies all over, and now the various colours as they start to ripen.
