Cubanelle Sweet Chili Seeds
Information: The Cubanelle Sweet Chili is an elongated, Italian sweet pepper with a mild heat and a spicy-sweet paprika flavour, more aromatic than a traditional sweet pepper. The best is to enjoy the juicy, thick-bodied fruits fresh, they are also excellent for cooking, for stews (such as for the Italian Peperonata), for stuffing and grilling. A great, extraordinary tasty pepper variety!
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.
