Purple UFO 2015!

I grow this season Purple UFOS a capsicum annuum, which is not so common. Seeds come from The Hippy Seed Company, Australia.

I have my plant in a 15 liter pot and it lasts well and good then
the plant grows mostly on height. The fruits have a very fine purple color
with a metallic shimmer. That mature is the deep red. The heat is medium
but it stands to significantly when you chew in a ripe fruit.

New seeds are ordered and going home this summer for this variety should I grow further.

    Why new seeds? You can not use from from propagated fruit?

      Hello Luke! Yes it can be but then I have so crowded in the greenhouse so there is a great risk of cross-pollination and that is why I always buy some varieties directly from source to get the varietal identity seeds. Yes it may not be 100% sure yet but safer. My own crossings do I seed from to grow further.

    Nice color! You wrote that you used 15 liter pot I have thought chili in the window at home, it can be run on in a pot 10 cm in diameter, 10 cm height or will they refuse to bear fruit?
