As easy to grow as tomatoes and requiring virtually the same treatment, peppers can also be grown outside but only in a shady position. The best results are obtained in polytunnels or a glasshouse. Sweet Sunshine F1 is a pepper that is ideal to grow on your patio, so is perfect if you are short of space in your garden. This plant produces heavy crops of small but tasty, pointed fruits. It is an easy to grow variety and can be grown in a hanging basket because of its unique trailing habit. The peppers are juicy and tender and will be ready to pick from mid-July onwards.
