Chilli Hungarian Hot Wax Plant


A very productive plant considering the size of the fruit is quiet large. This mild chilli is often picked immature when they are a lime green to yellow colour. This is when they have a crisp and fresh flavour. They can be left to ripen to a deep red.

Fruit Size:
Large fruit that can measure as much as 15cm in length and 4 cm in width.
Great in salads and stir-fry's.
Ideal for container or pot?
Can become quiet a large plant growing up to 90cm in height and 40cm wide. This makes them not ideal for growing in a small space. Because the fruit are so large the weight may mean you will have to stake the plant.

Is this plant "garden ready"?
As with all Chilli plants they love the heat. This is especially true when they are young. All Chilli starter plants should be grown on the windowsill or a greenhouse until they are established and the weather is warm.
What compost should I use?
A good quality multipurpose compost is ideal for this. You can use your own compost but make sure you know that it is not too high (or low) in nutrients.
What is a plug plant/starter plant?
A plug plant is a small starter plant that is perfect to pot up into a larger plant. We grow and sell so many of these because they allow us to do it for such a good price.
Will I get the plants in the picture?
Yes, In the main picture. As this plant is a starter plant it will not be fruiting but will grow to be the same as the picture. The plug (starter) plant picture is used to give you an idea of the size and may not be exactly the same plant.
