Transport yourself to a sunny bar in Spain. THE Tapas pepper is here! Favoured by my hero Raymond Blanc and so easy to grow and enjoy. Pick small for mild versions, the larger and redder they get the hotter they get. Lightly char by frying in olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt and enjoy - such flavour! Compact plants averaging 50cm high with a spread of 40cm. Download sowing guide
