Pot and plant size guide


When you are shopping on line it can be hard to know what size the plants are and what you are getting. This size guide is to help you know what you are getting.


Starter/Plug Plants
Starter plants (often known as plug plants) are cost effective way of buying plants. All of our plants are grwon in a 4.5cm by 5cm plug. This is bigger than most nurseries but we prefer to have a more established plant. The plants are well rooted and ready to be planted up either into a pot or (if the time of year is right) straight into the garden.
6cm Potted Plants
This is the perfect size for chilli and pepper plants in the early part of the year. In the early months of their life chillies can be a bit delicate. That is why we prefer to send them to you in a small pot. It reduces stress on the plant and helps keep the roots both protected and a little warmer.
9cm Potted Plants
9cm pots are the one of the most cost effective ways of buying plants. All of our 9cm plants have been growing for a long enough period of time to make sure you get a well rooted established plant. This size is perfect for planting out (when the weather permist) and means you get a established garden quicker.
1 litre Jumbo Potted Plants
These are big pots. Around 13cm in diameter and around the same depth. This takes a lot of the growing time away from you giving you are far bigger plant. This pot size is often ready from mid to late April onwards.

Plant Description

Aji Crystal chilli starter plant. Amazing slight grapefruit taste.

This is one of the best flavoured varieties we grow. Aji Crystal is a baccatum variety and as such has a citrus flavour. In some parts of the world this Chilli also goes by the name of “the grapefruit Chilli” due to its slight grapefruit like scent. This plant is very prolific and can produce up to 100 fruit in one year. The fruit is often better when picked immature in the dark green stage before it turns red. Throughout the cropping period this is a very allrounder Chilli and can be used in curries, salads, stews and really anything you want to add some Chilli flavour and heat to. As well as being enjoyed fresh Aji Crystal also dries well. Heat wise the fruit are medium to hot around 6-7 out of 10 The plant itself grows to around 1m in height and will spread around 50cm. It has a slightly open habit but will stay relatively compact. A nice variety to grow in a pot and when it’s in full flower with ripe fruit on it’s as good as any flowering plant. To sum up If you’re growing Chillies for a fab flavour this is the Chilli for you!
