NuMex Conquistador Chili Seeds
Info: The NuMex Conquistador was bred by the Chili Pepper Institute of the New Mexico State University (NuMex). It is a fantastic, rarely offered variety with a very high yield. The long, red fruits are mild, very sweet and are particularly good for crunchy salads, for stuffing or grilling.
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.
