Big Jamaican Chili Seeds
Info: The Big Jamaican chili is a pointed pepper with a typical pepper flavour, it can also develop a good portion of spiciness. The bushy plants are very high yielding and the thick-walled, juicy chilies ripen to a beautiful shiny red. They are particularly good for stuffing and grilling. They are also suitable for cooking in vegetable dishes, chili con carne or goulash. Due to their moderate level of spiciness, they are of course also good for fresh consumption, e.g. in salads.
Care: The germination temperature is between 20 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. If you plant them outdoors, the plants should have a distance between them of 45 cm.
