With their unusual spinning top-like shape, these Bishop's Crown chilli peppers will make a real statement wherever you choose to grow them. They're delicious too - their thin, crisp flesh lends itself perfectly to fresh salsas and also to stuffing and baking. The flavour is spicy, but almost fruity, with a comfortable level of heat. Although sometimes slow to mature, these chilli plants will set plenty of peppers throughout the growing season. Bishop's Crown chilli pepper plants are tall with a branching habit and so they will need some cane support whilst growing. Peppers are 7cm (2.8") wide and 3cm (1.2") deep with an intriguing three-cornered shape. Their attractive colouring varies from mid-green to orange-red to a rich, dark red.
