Capsicum spp.
Chillies are warm season, frost tender annuals to 60 – 80 cm tall. Seeds germinate best at 23 – 30°C soil temperature. Sowing at too low a temperature will cause delayed or failed germination.

Scoville Scale
The Scoville scale is a measure of the ‘hotness’ of a chilli pepper or anything made from chilli peppers, i.e. Tabasco sauce (2,500 – 5,000 Scoville). The scale is named after Wilbur Scoville who developed the test in 1912.
