Chocolate Pepper Dwarf Chilli Seeds
Info: These chocolate coloured dwarves are a very pretty and delicious breed from the Netherlands. The approx. 70 cm plants develop a variety of delicious, almost sweet fruits. They are suitable for fresh consumption (children in particular love them), as a splash of colour in salads, for cooking and for stuffing. One of our personal favourites.
Care: The germination temperature is between 20 und 28°C (7 - 20 day germination period), therefore the use of a greenhouse and a heating mat is recommended. The plants need fresh, well-fertilised, permeable soil, and do not tolerate waterlogging. They should be planted in a sunny, protected place with at least 6 hours of sunlight - preferably more. Put the plants outside approx. 2 to 3 weeks after the last frost. If you plant them outdoors, the plants should have a distance between them of at least 45 cm.
