Chilli Santa Fe Grande Plant
A lovely compact variety that is very early to produce a crop. The conical shaped fruit start off a white/ivory colour and will later mature to a deep red. The chillies have nice thick flesh.
Medium sized fruit that are 6cm in length and 2cm wide at the base.
Can be added to any dish you want some chilli heat and flavour too. A good all-round variety.
Ideal for container or pot?
A ideal plant for the patio. Not best in a very small space but is nice a compact growing to 50cm in height and spreading 30cm. This makes it ideal in a conservatory but not small enough for a windowsill.
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.
