Naschzipfel Violett Chili Seeds
Information: The Naschzipfel (Nibble point) Violett 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 violet. They have a good pepper flavour and are suitable for fresh consumption straight from the bush, but also for drying and pickling.
Care: Germination temperature is between 22°C and 28°C (germination period: 8-21 days); it is therefore recommended to use a greenhouse and a heating mat. 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. As the plants have a particularly long maturation period, it is recommended to grow them in a pot, so that you can easily bring the plant inside when the temperature falls below 12°C during the day, allowing all the fruits to ripen. To keep the plant over the winter, cut it back by 20cm after harvesting and place in a light place where it is at least 15°C.
