Sweet Wrinkled Old Men Chili Seeds
Info: The Sweet Wrinkled Old Men chili plants get their name due to the fact that they are slightly wrinkled and have an uneven surface. The plants are bushy and compact, and develop numerous long, red chilies. The chilies are very mild, and are therefore ideal for those who are not used to high levels of spiciness. They are suitable for pickling, stuffing or grilling.
Care: The germination temperature is between 20 und 28°C (7 - 20 day germination period), therefore the use of agreenhouse 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.
