Naschzipfel Red - Medusa Chili Seeds
Info: The Naschzipfel (Nibble point) Red or Medusa Chili is the milder relative of the Feuerküsschen (Fire kiss). The plants remain relatively small, and are therefore suitable for cultivation in pots on the balcony or windowsill. The approx. 1 x 4 cm long chilies grow upright and ripen in a beautiful colour sequence from green to yellow to red. They have a good pepper flavour and are suitable for fresh consumption straight from the bush, but also for drying and pickling.
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.
