Chili Pepper: Yellow Wax

This plant is a vertical powerhouse and a really heavy producer of yummy mild chilis. Their addition to a green salad will add a bit of variety and might even wow your friends.

Taste:

Sweet and mild. Definitely not a capsicum though. Add slices to salads for a bit of a change but my favourite is stuffed with creme cheese and munched whole :).

Fruiting Months:

  • January

Planting/Care:

I keep it topped to encourage flowering but also stop it shading its neighbours.

No need to wait for them to turn yellow in every case. Light greens as just as tasty.
