Rekord Chili Seeds
Information: The Rekord Chili actually achieves record harvests - so the name really says it all. The variety originates from Hungary and on the large, up to 120 cm high plants ripen countless of the elongated pepperonis, which can be consumed in green (crunchy fresh) as well as in red (sweet and juicy). You can eat them either fresh, but they also taste excellent pickled or filled. The variety is robust and is well suited for outdoor cultivation.
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.
