Best known for its compact shape, the Apache pepper is a dwarf plant perfect for container gardening, both indoors (in a sunny corner or window sill) and out. But don’t let the size of the plant lull you into thinking there’s a family-friendly heat in these chilies. No, the Apache is chock full of spice, rivaling the likes of extra-hot Thai peppers, with a touch of sweetness behind the heat – perfect for use in salsas and spicy Asian cuisine.
If you have never successfully grown a chilli plant this is a great place to start, simply put you cannot go wrong with this variety, it's very happy in the UK climate and as long as you don't over water you will get an outstanding crop throughout the summer and into the Autumn.
