Navajo Chili Seeds
Information: Navajo (or navaho) chillies have a bushy growth form and produce beautiful, elongated (approx. 15cm long), slightly wrinkled fruits. They ripen from green to a rich dark red colour. They are full of flavour, mildly hot and perfect for salads, stuffing, roasting or grilling.
Care: Germination temperature is between 20°C and 28°C (germination period: 7-20 days); it is therefore recommended to use a greenhouse and a heating mat. The plants need fresh, well-fertilised permeable soil and should not be left in standing water. They should be placed in a sunny, sheltered place with at least 6 hours of sunlight per day, if not more. Place the plants outside around 2 to 3 weeks after the last frost. When you plant the seedlings outdoors, take care to leave at least 30cm of space between each plant.
