Petit Marseillais Chili Seeds
Information: Petit Marseillais is a French heirloom that comes from the Marseille region in Southern France. It is a small bell pepper that is bright yellow, very sweet and with a mild to no heat level. The plants are about 70 cm tall and are suitable for both outdoor cultivation and pot culture. Very productive! The small peppers are delicious if eaten fresh and are a real all-rounder in the kitchen, whether cooked, grilled, stuffed or as a side-dish.
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.
