Button Mixed

With a compact plant habit ‘Button Mixed’ is ideal for patio containers and pot production. The 2.5cm long pendula fruits ripen from bright green to red/yellow, producing over 75 per plant with a very mild 500 SHU level. The plants are best finished in 12cm pots for commercial sales before placing in larger garden containers. Button Mixed is a 50/50 formula mixed of highly attractive and edible ‘Button red’ and ‘Button yellow’ fruits.
