Chilli Hungarian hot wax
Average 30 seeds
I grow my own chillies purely for the convenience of having a fresh supply to hand whenever I need it.
The wonderful thing about Hungarian Hot Wax is the chillies start off sweet, with a mild heat that intensifies dramatically as it turns from pale green through to a rich deep red. It gives you the option of creating everything from mildly spicy salads through to ferociously hot salsas.
They love heat so it's essential to start them off inside, but they can be moved outside from June, providing you've got a sunny and sheltered spot for them. If not, just keep them in pots indoors on a sunny windowsill or in a conservatory.
