Description

Rooster Spur
(Capsicum annuum)

Rooster Spur is a short, very bushy plant, ideal for a windowsill. The fruit are very small (measuring about 4.5 x 15mm), very hot (exceeding any other C. annuum we sell) and have a very good flavour. They turn from green to red as they ripen and stick upwards above the foliage.

Their low growing, bushy growth habit means they need no support as they grow. They are perfectly adapted to containers, performing well in both smaller and larger pots: the plants just get bigger and bear more fruit as the pot gets larger.

We have been growing Rooster Spur since the early 1990s and have always been impressed by its incredible productivity: for example, we have harvested over 3,000 mature fruit from a single plant in a 7.5 litre pot.
