Apache F1 is well worth a try - we love its reliability & productiveness with very little fuss. A real doer! Apache F1 chilli seeds are easy to germinate and produce a small compact bushy plant that only reaches about 35-45cm.
Apache F1 is a Capsicum annuum which is a species of the plant genus Capsicum native to southern North America, the Caribbean, and northern South America. This species is the most common and extensively cultivated of the five domesticated capsicums. The species encompasses a wide variety of shapes and sizes of peppers, both mild and hot, such as bell peppers, jalapeños, and cayenne peppers. Capsicum annuum is an evergreen Perennial growing to 1m by 1m at a medium rate. It is hardy to UK zone 9 and is frost tender. It is in leaf all year, in flower from July to September, and the seeds ripen from August to October. The species is hermaphrodite (which has both male and female organs).
A sturdy plant with lots and lots of small conical shaped chilli peppers that mature from a light green to a glossy red and measure 3cm long by 1.5cm wide. It matures early from late June onwards and will just keep on producing more pods throughout the season don't forget the more you pick, the more pods will be formed.
Apaches are very useful in the kitchen as an everyday type chilli with a medium heat level. They are great used fresh but can be frozen and used later or can be easily dried and ground into chilli powder/flakes. We highly recommend this variety especially if you are new to chilli growing as Apache F1 chilli pepper is easy to grow, reliable and very productive.
Apache F1 makes an ideal small container plant and as it produces so many little pods it would make a wonderful attractive addition to the kitchen windowsill, in fact, Apache is one of the few chilli's that can be grown all year round - the pods could then just be picked as and when needed.
PLEASE NOTE - we do not recommend growing chillies on a windowsill, especially the hotter varieties. Chillies need a constant and consistent temperature to germinate and windowsills above radiators do not provide the ideal conditions.
