Bert the Chilli
The chilli that got Neil interested in growing chillies and started him with his chilli obsession. A friend of Neil had Bert the Chilli in the backyard. It was massive and had hundreds of pods on it.
The plant is a prolific grower and an awesome producer. If you plant it in the ground it can get up to 10 feet tall. Bert the chilli is a C. Baccatum from unknown origin.
The pods are 7-8 cm long and 2-3 cm wide, they start green and end up red.
Our our favourite chilli for pickling, but it would be a great chilli for any dish.
