    You might be lucky, capsicum like heat and our summer seems to be very slow starting. It is worth a try.

    It goes to seed (bolts) very quickly in hot weather so it won't get very large before it becomes unusable.

    My understanding is that the warmer weather can cause it to bolt and go to seed extremely quickly. It likes sun but needs less heat to give the full benefits and yeild. Nz spinach does better duri...
