Marconi Purple Chili Seeds
Info: The Marconi Purple chili is a beautiful Italian pointed pepper without any heat. The tasty peppers ripen from green to dark purple to red and can be eaten in any maturity state. The plants grow bushy and reach up to 70 cm in height. They bear large amounts of the peppers up into autumn, especially when you pick them regularly. The fruits have an intense and sweet pepper flavour and are suitable for fresh consumption, in salads, as snacks, for frying, stuffing and grilling.
Care: The germination temperature is between 20 und 28°C (7 - 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.
