Capsicum 'Purple Beauty'
Sturdy compact plants are covered in fruit that change from emerald green to midnight black then ripening to a beautiful deep purple. Harvest in the black or purple phase- depending on your mood! Harvest in 11 weeks from transplant.
The capsicum family have a greater demand for heat than tomatoes, so in cooler areas start your capsicums indoors so that they can be planted outside as advanced seedlings after the risk of frost has passed. Choose a warm, sunny spot and cultivate it deeply adding dolomite to supply the capsicums need for calcium and magnesium. Regular harvesting improves the productivity and vigour of the plant. Pick the fruit using secateurs to avoid damaging the plant and wear gloves when harvesting chillies!
