Pepper Chilli Plants - Basket of Fire

A prolific-fruiting basket/container chilli which drips with hot little fruits on compact, leafy, semi-trailing plants. The fruits mature from deep purple through cream and orange to mature to a bright red. Basket of Fire’s unique habit makes it a perfect choice for hanging baskets and containers, and the plants have a good tolerance to cooler weather, which means they go on cropping well into the autumn. You don't have to have a large vegetable garden to grow your own. Even the smallest patio or balcony can accommodate a few containers that will give you a bumper crop of delicious fresh produce!

On Receipt - Check the plants are moist and grow on in 10cm pots using a good quality potting compost. When planting, ensure that the graft is well above soil level to prevent the scion rooting into the soil which would reduce resistance to soil borne diseases. Maintaining a temperature of 16-18ºC (60-65ºF) and provide a cane support.

Growing On - Once the roots fill the pots, transfer into 30cm (12") pots or plant in the greenhouse border 60cm (2') apart. The plants are not suitable for growing in grow bags due to the strong root system. They are vigorous plants and as the fruit start to set start feeding twice a week using a liquid tomato fertiliser. On hot sunny days damp down the pathways to increase the humidity and misting the plants with water will aid fruit setting. The plants can be grown on a sunny patio once the danger of frost has passed in early June but the best results will be obtained when grown in the greenhouse.
