Patio Fire Chili Seeds
Info: The Patio Fire Chili is an extraordinarily beautiful and decorative plant. As the name would imply, the small, long pointed fruits look like flames from a fire. This effect is strengthened by the fact that they ripen from green to yellow to red in a beautiful colour sequence. As the plants do not grow particularly large (approx. 45 cm in height) they are suitable for growing in pots on the balcony or terrace. The chillies have a slight spiciness and are most suitable for salsas and sauces, but also for fresh consumption and for drying.
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 30 cm.
