Plug plant of a Capsium annuum chilli  Capsicum annuum

An early and productive cayenne bred by Sea Spring Seeds. The fruit are about 60mm long and turn from light green to red with maturity. They measure a respectable 35,000 SHUs, which puts them at the lower end of the hot category.

The plants are short about 35cm tall and somewhat trailing. The plants can be grown in pots as small as 13cm in diameter, but they will do better if the pots are bigger ­– at least 19 to 20cm is perfect. The plants have a tendency to bend over at the roots so they are good in hanging baskets, though they are easily kept upright by using bamboo canes for support.They are very productive.

The plants are early, and although we always recommend growing chillies indoors, given its earliness Super Tramp is the variety of choice for gardeners who intend to keep their chilli plants outdoors (though we would recommend outdoor chillies are kept in an area sheltered from cold winds). It is also a good variety to try in areas with a short growing season.

This variety is very similar to the American variety, Super Chile.

Approximate heat level: 35,000 SHU
