Biquinho Vermelho Chili Seeds
Information: Biquinho Vermelho chili from Brazil is pronounced bee-KEE-nyo and means "little beak". The bright red 4 cm pods taper to a point like an inverted teardrop and have a rich fruitiness with a distinctive smokey flavour and no heat. Therefore, this chili is perfect for marinades, barbecues and pickles and adds a kiss of flavour to any dish. The plant grow 70 to 90 cm high and are high yielding.
Care: Germination temperature is between 22°C and 28°C (germination period: 10-20 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. 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.
