Planting chilli peppers in Growstuff

Hi everyone!

I'm trying to enter all the plants I'm growing this year and I've run into a bit of trouble, because I don't know the name for what I would call chilli peppers ("Peperoni" in German). I looked for "chilli", "pepper", "capsicum" in the list, but now I'm out of ideas.

There are cayenne pepper and bell pepper, both 'Capsicum annuum'. So I'm guessing one of those would work.

Ah, I didn't think of cayenne!

My chilli peppers are different kind (jalapeƱos, Habanero), but putting them in as cayenne peppers will definitely work for now.

Thank you for your help,

Bero

I believe jalapenos are also capsicum annuum (or I'm misremembering... but it was one of the common ones:-) )

No worries at all:-) I had gone looking for capsicums just the other day, which was how I knew what was there:-)
