Pepper (Chilli) Demon Red
Demon Red is the ideal variety to grow on the window sill or patio because of its size. They are very dwarf plants that produce bright red fruit which are very hot, having a Scoville Heat Unit rating of 30,000 to 50,000 dependant on maturity.
As easy to grow as tomatoes and requiring much of the same treatment. Peppers can be grown outside, so long as they are in a sheltered sunny area, but best results are usually obtained when they are grown in a polytunnel or a glasshouse. Peppers are delicious when used raw in salads but are also very tasty when cooked. They can be stuffed, roasted or added to sauces.
