Beaver Dam Chili Seeds
Info: The Beaver Dam Chili is one of the old varieties that was brought from Hungary to the USA (this variety to Beaver Dam in Wisconsin). The plants are bushy and develop numerous mild, juicy fruits which have a length of up to approx. 12 cm. The colour sequence when ripening is particularly striking: from green to yellow-orange-brown to red. The chillies have a sweet pepper flavour and are suitable for fresh consumption, pickling, grilling and stuffing (fantastic with sheep’s cheese).
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.
