One of the easiest hot peppers to grow, the Apache F1 pepper is an attractive, compact plant which will produce a seemingly never-ending supply of little, conical-shaped fruits. A dwarf variety, the Apache is perfect for the patio or container garden.

A UK garden staple, the Apache F1 is one of the most common and easiest to grow peppers found in British home gardens. It?s small and compact (growing only to about 35-50 cm tall), yet can produce over 100 pods in a single growing season! The seeds are easy to germinate and the fruits are medium-hot and tasty. And as for size, the Apache is so small that some folks grow them on their kitchen windowsill.

The Apache is an ideal pepper to get started with early, as it will produce the whole growing season long (assuming you keep picking the pods). In the kitchen, Apache peppers are quite versatile and can be used fresh or dried and are great for deep freezing.

If you?re new to growing chilli peppers, this may be the variety for you. It?s super easy, great tasting and quite prolific.

Note: If you have access to grow lights and a heated propagator you can start sowing your plants in December and January to give you a head start on the year.


Sow pepper seeds about 1 cm deep into a seed tray or in small pots or cells.  Cover lightly, water and place inside at between 20-25°C to aid germination,  place the tray in a plastic bag.
Sow January-March.
Germination can be slow with some hot peppers.

As soon as seedlings are large enough to handle, prick out.
Transplant the seedlings into small individual pots. Use rich compost and keep  the plants between 20-30°C during the growing season.

For best production keep the plants in the Greenhouse, Polytunnel, Conservatory.


Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots. Plant in the greenhouse in individual large pots, or 3 plants per growbag when 20cm (8in) high.

Can be planted outdoors, 45cm (18in) apart once all frost risk has passed.



Suitable for the vegetable garden, allotments and containers.
Be prepared to water well and supplement feed with high-potash feed during season. Regular feeding is recommended.
