A Hot Summer Survivors selection!

A dwarf child-safe variety bearing non-pungent fruit, easy-to-grow Medusa is naturally compact and well-branched, making it ideal for 4-in. (10-cm) pot culture, with no growth regulators needed. Plants stay compact in gardens and containers. Produces colourful, 2 to 2.5-in. (5 to 5.5-cm) fruit – each with a narrow, twisted, cone shape – held prominently upright over the dark green foliage. Fruit starts out ivory, turns to yellow, then orange, and finally bright red. A single plant can produce 40 to 50 fruits, displaying the entire range of colours at one time. Medusa holds its fruit well, allowing for great shelf life and long sales period. Perfect for the Autumn and Christmas indoor pot plant market.
