Chillies To Spice Up Your Summer!

Exciting new chillies available as 10cm potted plants

Chill out with Chillies!

Chill out in your garden by planting Chillies in a variety of luscious shades, from sunshine-yellow to deep purple! Suttons brings you two exciting new varieties as 10cm potted plants, ready to grow on at home.

Chilli plants are highly attractive with their glossy fruits contrasting against green foliage. Grow in a sunny spot in a patio container or in a greenhouse, and you’ll be enjoying the heat of your own home-grown chillies from August to October!

What’s hot…

A chilli-licious citrus sensation!

Chilli Hot Lemon plants produce medium hot chillies that not only have the same sunshine-yellow colour as a sun-ripe lemon but also have a similar burst of citrus flavour, which tastes amazing in a salsa or added to sauces.

The shining fruit contrasts with the green foliage, making this chilli stand out from the crowd and easy to pick. Each chilli can be eaten milder when green or left to ripen to yellow when they gain a spicy aroma.

Chilli Hot Lemon plants grow to a mature height and width of approximately 45cm and are well-branched. Grow in a greenhouse or in full sun on a patio for 8-10cm fruits rating 25,000-30,000 SHU on the Scoville scale.

Spice up your salsa!

The citrus tang and heat of Chilli Hot Lemon is perfect for tangy salsas or sauces. Try adding thinly sliced Chilli Hot Lemon to diced fresh tomatoes and red onion, add a very finely chopped garlic clove, a splash of white wine vinegar, some lime juice and coriander to taste. The perfect spicey accompaniment to barbecued fish this summer!

  • Peppers and chilli plants are extremely low in calories.
  • The heat of chilli pepper plants actually comes from the strip that attaches the seed to the fruit, rather than the seed itself.
