Tolli`s Sweet Italian Chili Seeds
Information: The Tolli`s Sweet Italian Chili is a delicious red pointed pepper heirloom from Italy. The scarlet-red pointed peppers are about 10 to 15 cm long, very flavourful, sweet and juicy and have no heat. It is one of the most varied vegetable peppers and is both excellent and tasty fresh in salads and cooked in sugos, as well as roasted, fried or stuffed, e.g. with cream cheese. The plants bear large yields and harvesting starts relatively early after 75 to 85 days. Also suitable for outdoor cultivation.
Care: Germination temperature is between 22°C and 28°C (germination period: 6-20 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 45cm of space between each plant.
