Aci Biber Medium Chili Seeds
Information: The Aci Biber Medium Chili is a mild Turkish pepper. "Aci Biber" means "hot pepper" in Turkish. The common Aci Biber have pods of about 18 cm length, this variety is shorter with 12 cm pods. The plants are approx. 75 cm and have a high yield of the red, long, narrow chillies. The peppers are flavourful and one of the best varieties for pickling. They are also very good dried and can be made into a fantastic paprika powder. Due to their mild heat Level, they are also good for fresh consumption, for cooking and grilling.
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.
