Aji Dulce Long Chili Seeds
Information: Aji Dulce Long is the perfect chili if you are looking for the fruity flavour of a habanero without its pungent spiciness. The fruits of the aji dulce long chili plant are elongated and slightly folded, but have the intense flavour typical of the Capsicum chinense species. The plants can grow to a great size and produce a large number of fruits. The peppers ripen from green to orange to a bright red, they are juicy and can be eaten uncooked as an ingredient in salads and salsas. They also do not lose their flavour when cooked.
Care: Germination temperature is between 22°C and 28°C (germination period: 10-18 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 placed in a sunny, protected place with at least 6 hours of sunlight - preferably more. 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 plants 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.
