Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20 degree C (60-68 degree F) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 7-21 days. Transplant to individual pots when large enough to handle. Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Plant out May-June, to large pots, growing bags or into warm, well-drained soil in the greenhouse border. For outdoor crops: delay indoor sowing until March or April. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out 40 cm (16-inch) apart, when frosts are over. Choose a warm, sunny spot. Outdoor crops will be smaller and later than those in a greenhouse. Harvest: July-October. Hints and tips: For ‘tapas,’ harvest when green and the size of an olive. Fry whole in olive oil and add sea salt. Larger peppers gain heat and can be used as other chilli peppers.
