Capsicum Redskin is a true dwarf plant that still produces large 10-13cm (4-5in) fruits with thick walls and sweet mild flavour. This high yielding variety produces glossy green fruit that mature to bright red early in the season. The dwarf sized plants have a spreading and cascading habit that make it a wonderful choice for windowsills, patios or container gardening.
