Description

Rooster Spur
(Capsium annuum)

We have been growing Rooster Spur on and off since the early 1990s and have always been impressed by its productivity: in 2014, for example, we harvested over 3000 mature fruit from a single plant. The fruit are very small (measuring about 4.5 x 20mm) and very hot (exceeding all other C. annuum we sell). They turn from green to red as they ripen and are quite late to mature. 

The plants have a short, bushy growth habit, so 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 get larger.

Heat level: approx 180,000 SHU (very hot)
