Santa Fe Grande Chilli Seeds


Santa Fe Grande (capsicum annuum)

This has to be one of the bbq chefs favourites. It is a jalopeno type chilli, with thick skin and quite large conical shaped pods. They start a pale green, and are often used that way (we put them straight on the kebab skewer like this) but if left they ripen through orange to a deep red (when they are particularly good sliced and put on a pizza). They have a good crunch to them, and a surprising kick of heat being a little hotter than a standard jalopeno at around 8000shu.
Plants are compact and quite hardy, generally growing half a metre tall before spreading out into a low bush.

I wonder if it’s obvious that I wrote this at lunchtime…?
