Medium hot chilli to 45cm tall? Our 2 are over a metre tall and still growing! And the chillis are blisteringly, ear-wax-meltingly hot.
The seeds took a really long time to germinate - over a month - but eventually all the seeds we tried to sprout germinated well. We only potted out 2, because we didn't have room in the conservatory for more, and a good thing too! These plants are huge and incredibly prolific. I picked 1/2 lb of the purple chillis to make a tabasco-esque sauce and it hardly even made a dent. Even if you aren't a fan of hot chilli, this is a very attractive shrub, with a very even, spreading canopy, dark green leaves and the amazing array of purple, orange and red upright flame-shaped chillis. I definitely recommend this variety and this seller!
