This is a great chilli plant and my wife's favorite. It produces lots of fruits that are hot and flavor full, perfect for a tomato soup with cumin. she was really angry with me when I had forgotten to sow seeds of this plant this year.

They certainly can produce a lot of pods in a bigger pot. I've got 240 so far from my Apache and by the looks of things I can think I can get over 300. Next time I grow one it will be going in a smaller pot so I can put it on a windowsill, I do agree they are nice plants.

My Suttons packet says they are Annuum. I'm in my second year of growing them and I think they will be a staple variety for me for years to come because they produce so well and are quite beautiful in pots too.
I'd be very interested to know what two varieties produce an apache.

Apache are great plants and are easy to look after. you get a large amount of pods from a small plant.
pods arnt too hot, i tend to dry and crush and use as a chilli sprinkle.

My 2p :lol:
First time growing them this year.. and I can safely say I will be growing them next year.
I grew mine in a pot in the office and it was one of the easyest to look after. All that was needed is feed n water and the odd cain as mine grew quite large (its taken up aprox one square meter of the window!) Nice looking plants too.

Taste wise quite hot but not too hot (well ok my taste buds might of got used to hotter chillis as other people did say they were in pain lol)

Will be getting more for next year!

Very pleased with my Apache plants

Very prolific, although some of the pods can be like little pearls in size

Taste wise I agree with eeyore, good heat but nothing silly

Well worth planting next year

Recommend these to beginners - compact and prolific and so encouraging; chillies start pretty quickly - a pleasant level of heat and a good chilli for drying too. I have one every year although due to space I might stop as I explore all the option -
