Cornetto Chili Seeds
Info: The Cornetto Chili is an old variety from Italy and the name means “little horn”. It is a flavourful and sweet red pointed pepper without heat, and is slightly thicker than the Spanish variety. They are particularly delicious when stuffed with goats cheese. But they are also suitable for fresh consumption, for pickling, grilling, and cooking. The plants reach a height of 65 cm, are bushy and have a high yield.
Care: The germination temperature is between 20 und 28°C (8 - 21 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.
