Taste of Italy Seeds - Chilli Pepper Peperone Fuego F1

Chilli Pepper Peperone Fuego is a hot Cayenne pepper which produces tapering, 15cm long fruits that turn from green to fiery red as they ripen. With a compact, upright habit and short internodes, Chilli Pepper Peperone Fuego is ideal for growing in growbags or containers on the patio. This particular variety produces abundant crops if picked regularly throughout the summer.

Flowering period: Jun-Sep
Sowing months: Jan-Apr
Position: Full sun
Height: 50cm
Spread: 40cm

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 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 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. Chilli 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 apart.

Water chilli pepper plants regularly throughout the growing season and feed weekly with a high potash tomato fertiliser once the first fruits have set. Taller varieties of chilli peppers may require staking. Provide a thick mulch of organic matter around the base of the plants to help conserve moisture and reduce weed growth. In greenhouses, maintain high humidity by damping down paths daily. Harvest chillies singly by cutting them from the plant with secateurs or pull the entire plant when full of red peppers, and hang upside down in the kitchen for use all year round. Chilli peppers grown outdoors must be harvested before the first frosts.

Vegetable Seeds - Parsnip Gladiator

World's first hybrid parsnip. Fast maturing, consistent high quality flesh, silky-smooth white skin. Very good disease resistance and a superb, sweet, crisp-tasting vegetable. Parsnips are much underrated mainly because of a lack of imagination in cooking. Fried parsnips can be a gourmet masterpiece. Boil first and finish off in a frying pan with a knob of butter and sprinkle with brown sugar. Thus prepared they acquire a particularly crisp and sweet taste.

For long parsnips you need a deeply dug soil which has been manured for a previous crop. However, they will do well on ordinary well drained and cultivated soil. Sow April to June, 1cm (½ inch) deep in drills 30cm (12 inches) apart. Sow clusters of 4 seeds every 20cm (8 inches) and thin out to the strongest seedlings after germination. Germination is very slow and it is helpful to sow a pinch of lettuce seeds between each cluster of seeds. They will mark the row and can be cut before the parsnips need the room.

Harvest the roots from autumn onwards, leaving them in the ground until required.
