Palmichal Negro Chili Seeds
Info: The Palmichal Negro chili is a rarely offered variety from Costa Rica with fruits which ripen from green to brown to almost black. The long chillies have only a low level of spiciness. They look beautiful on the bush and are very flavourful. They are suitable for cooking, grilling and stuffing, but are also good for drying.
Care: The germination temperature is between 21 und 28°C (8 - 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.
