Alexandru Chili Seeds
Information: The Alexandru Chili is a red pointed pepper without heat. The variety comes from Hungary and ripens moderately late. The smooth, long, conical and pointed fruits ripen deep red and have a fine paprika taste. They are suitable for stuffing, grilling, fresh consumption, roasting and pickling. The plants are vigorous, very productive and often need a support.
Care: Germination temperature is between 20°C and 28°C (germination period: 7-18 days); it is therefore recommended to use a greenhouse and a heating mat. The plants need fresh, well-fertilised permeable soil and should not be left in standing water. They should be placed in a sunny, sheltered place with at least 6 hours of sunlight per day, if not more. Take care to place Alexandru chillies in a sunny position when planting them outside (do not do so until after the last frost). To keep them over the winter, cut them back by 20cm after harvesting and place them in a pot in a light place where it is at least 15°C.
