Cabe Merah Chilli Seeds. Particularly fond of this little one. A good grower, these chillies love the sun and warmth to grow to about 60cm in height. Long slender leaves and producing plenty of trailing serpent like chillies that hang from the plant but are twisted and contorted like writhing snakes. Pods turn from dark green to bright red and its a fairly quicj grower too. The proof in the pudding is laways in the pods... and these little pods are super fine! Producing a lovely honest peppery brun that starts slow but keeps on giving. Up there with the really tasty chillies. It's got a fair heat too... putting it up there with other Thai like chillies. All round a really great little plant!
