Pepper 'Chilli Willy' - 1 packet (4 chilli pepper seeds)

Pepper ‘Chilli Willy’ – 1 packet (4 chilli pepper seeds) £2.99
There’s no avoiding the rude resemblance of the aptly named ‘Chilli Willy’. This rare heirloom variety has been grown for many years under various guises. In more innocent times it was known as the Peter Pepper. It is a form of Capsicum annuum, though not officially recognised as a cultivar of the species. We’ve renamed it for a modern audience hoping to see it more widely grown, reducing its rarity both in the market place and in the world of chillies.The naughty-looking fruits are medium hot (23,000 scoville heat units), but it’s not just about the heat - there’s a good depth of flavour too. It’s an easy-to-grow variety requiring no special care. Best results will be had in a warm greenhouse, but ‘Chilli Willy is ideal for windowsill growing and will also perform on the patio. Wherever you grow it, it is bound to entertain your guests at barbecues and outdoor dinner parties this summer – it definitely makes for a good conversation starter!Hurry we only have limited stocks for the 2016 growing season!
