After Glow – Space Chilli (HJ 10)
Approx. 6,000-10,000 SHU
This is one of the most prolific of the space chillies and grows red. Up to 40 fruit on the plant at once and it just keeps pumping them out. Very similar to a cayenne look and taste wise but quite a bit sweeter. Like the cayenne chilli pepper this one is very versatile but we love them fresh or pickled.
“For many decades work has been going on by the Chinese who have been sending seeds into orbit on satellites exposing them to zero gravity. It has become apparent that the trip into space is creating higher yields, bigger produce, and an increase in the levels of nutrients in the resulting fruit.”
