Description

Super Tramp
(Capsicum annuum)

A product of our breeding efforts, Super Tramp is an early and productive chilli perfect for places with a short growing season. The fruit are thin-fleshed, about 6cm long and turn from light green to red as they ripen. They pack plenty of heat and can be both dried and frozen for winter use.

The short, bushy plants have spreading branches and can be grown in pots as small as 1 litre. For bigger plants and larger yields, however, try using pots up to 7.5 litre in volume. Given its early maturity, Super Tramp is worth trying in sheltered spots outdoors in warmer parts of the country.

Species

Capsicum annuum

Fruit characteristics

The fruit are about 5cm long and 1cm wide tapering to a point. They start a lime green and ripen to a red. When green the fruit have a tendency to develop a blackening where the sun shines on them. They grow in all directions, up, down and sideways!

Plant size

Plants are untidy bushes that benefit from some support. In 7.5 litre pots they will grow to 40-50cm tall. However, they do very well in smaller pots, and are capable of producing attractive houseplants in 1 or 2 litre pots.
