Gigante Chili Seeds
Information: Chili Gigante is - as the name suggests - a large sweet bell pepper with up to 15 cm long blocky pods. These are aromatic and juicy without any heat and ripen from green to a beautiful bright red. They are suitable as a raw food in the salad, for roasting, stewing, barbecueing and stuffing. Plant support is recommended.
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.
