Demon Red Chilli Seeds
[80 days to red] A small attractive chilli that’s compact enough for a windowsill, Demon Red produces numerous upright fruits 2-3cm (2-2⅓in) long and 0.3cm (⅓in) in diameter that vary from bright green to vivid red when mature. The plants are compact, growing to about 35 cm (14”), and have decorative dark purple-green leaves. They grow well both indoors or outdoors, and each plant is delightfully prolific with up to 100 fruits per plant.
At approximately 40,000 SHUs per fruit, these little beasties pack a punch, so use care when handling them. Great either fresh or dried.
