Getting Spicy at GroWell Sheffield!
With the warm weather we've been having recently, the chillies inside our GroWell Sheffield Hydroponic Greenhouse are really starting to get their pods out! As you can see below, this year the system of choice is the RhizoSystem...
At the end nearest the reservoir we have a selection of 3 mild varieties of chilli, two of each plant.
These are producing loads of fruits now, especially the Jalapeños and Joe's Longs.

It's not all mild chillies though, we also have some super hot bad boys for those who like a kick!

We really like the unusual Rocoto Chillies here at GroWell Sheffield. They produce fruit that are round in shape, have black seeds and pack a really flavourful punch!
Over the next month, the greenhouse is set to pump out so many chillies that we won't know what to do with them! So please come down and ask for some free produce to help us out!
