It grows up to 30cm(12in) and spreads up to 60cm(24in). It's a perfect pepper for balcony pots.

Seeds are small and very yellow.
Plant the seeds between January and April. Seeds need 5-7 to germinate.Like every pepper it likes well-drained soil and air temperature from 15-21°C (60-70F).

Peppers grow till August when they are ready for collecting till first frost.
This pepper can also be grown over winter if you have a sunny and warm place for it.
