Pepper Trinidad Perfume
This pepper is a must have for anybody who enjoys cooking. With authentic Habanero flavour, without the heat! This is an invaluable variety in the kitche. When used in conjunction with a hot Habanero it allows the cook to control the depth of the flavour, without adding too much heat.
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.

When to sow
WHEN TO SOW
>February to April
Where to Sow
Sow seed on the surface of a free draining compost in pots or trays and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite and place at a temperature 18-21°C until seeds germinate.
What to do next
Prick out seedlings when large enough to handle into 7cm (3in) pots and grow on underglass. Once plants reach 10cm (4in) high transplant into growbags or 25cm (10in) pots and grow on underglass. Feed once a week with tomato fertiliser once first fruits have set.
Late July to October
To help support the weight of the crop it is best to tie the plants to some canes as they grow. Water regularly and spray the foliage to keep the plants cool and encourage fruit to set.
A good source of Vitamin C and beta carotene.
