There are a lot of ornamental chillies out there but this one is a ripper if you are crazy about purple varieties. We found this one to be particularly vibrant in its purple stage before transitioning through a rainbow spectrum of colours, turning a final red. Unbelievably easy to maintain, the Purple Candlelight is a great variety to grow in small patio pots. Plant height is around 60cms with pod size 2.5cm long. They are edible when ripe and the flavour is quite similar to a birdseye.
