gardener's tip:
Should be planted in a sheltered, frost-free location. Peppers love direct sunshine. Break off the first flower/fruit of the peppers, this will help to get additional yield of subsequent crops. The refinement offers and ensures a significantly higher yield.
The 'Apache' F1 has a compact growth and a height of about 35 cm. The red, very decorative hanging fruits reach a length of about 7 cm and are very aromatic and spicy. Fruits can be used raw to season dishes. For later use they can be dried, marinated in oil or used for chilli sauces. Fully riped fruits are the hottest. The highest concentration of Capasaicin, which is responsible for the hot flavour, can be found at the fruit set. When working with chilis we recommend wearing gloves as remains of the fruit can cause irritations of the skin or could get into your eyes.
