  • A European heirloom, productive and disease resistant. Quite tall plants with long branches bearing huge quantities of fruit. The peppers are long and slender starting as dark green they ripen to a brilliant yellow. A medium hot and delicious Chilli pepper. Supporter Nicky says ‘I love them, have bags of them in the freezer as it is so easy to freeze them whole!’ Certified Organic

    Both plants and fruits are mini. With this variety the fruits could almost be mistaken for an unusual tomato. The chocolate refers to the colour of the peppers which is a rich, dark brown/red, rather than the flavour, which is mild and sweet when cooked. The texture and flesh are firm and crisp so this little pepper would be ideal for stuffing with cream cheese and roasting whole. Certified Organic

    A Russian heirloom. This bush tomato is incredibly bountiful, giving large amounts of sweet medium sized tomatoes from each plant. Certified Organic
