Pimento Sweet Chili Seeds
Info: The Pimento Sweet Chili is a slightly spicy sweet pepper with heart-shaped fruits and a fleshy, juicy fruit wall. The numerous dark green fruits ripen to a full red and have a sweet flavour. A delicious type for colourful salads or simply as a small snack in between meals. They are also good for cooking and for making fine sauces.
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.
