Gypsy Chili Seeds
Information: The Gypsy Chili is a juicy, longish paprika without heat, which probably comes from Hungary. The red ripening fruits have a delicious taste and grow to about 6 x 12 cm. With good care, the plants can grow to over one metre in size, are prolific and resistant to the tobacco mosaic virus. You can harvest after about 60 to 65 days.
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.
