With a great fruity tang, and it's not too hot, this rare little beauty originates from South America. It is named from its winged shape resembling the flaps on a Bishop's Crown, which are milder and fruitier than the main medium heat part of the chilli (5,000-15,000 SHU). Ripening from light green to apple red, this beautiful ornamental variety crops and ripens later than the majority of other chillies, hence its nickname ‘Christmas Bell’.
Surface-sow or barely cover the seeds indoors, but keep warm and moist. When sprouts appear move them to a warm sunny window. Set out well-developed transplants after last frost date when weather is warm. Peppers need rich moist soil and warm sunny conditions to flourish. Sow early in spring for best results.
