“This is a breathtaking chilli variety and definitely worth growing”
Scarlett’s Chilli is a C. Annuum bred by Graeme Chaplin in Western Australia, and it is one of the most beautiful chilli varieties we have.
It is a Purple Tiger cross and we have grown it for 6 seasons now. We are still working on stabilising the variegated version. 1 in 3 turns out variegated, so you will get a few of this stunning variety. We don’t sell many varieties that aren’t 100% stable, but we thought this one is so gorgeous, so here it is for you to have a go.
The plant is short and very busy with amazing variegated leaves. White, purple and green leaves mixed together beautifully. Even the pods have a remarkable colour change. They start off a dark purple, then the pods go through different shades of violet with dark stripes to a final state of red with blotchy purple stripes.
Pod size: 3cm long and 1.5-2cm wide
Flavour: They have a slightly sweet taste and are very juicy
Heat level: Medium
