Frontera Sweet Chili Seeds
Info: The Frontera Sweet Chili comes from the Canary Islands and is an excellent mild Chinense variety with a distinct Habanero flavour. Perfect for those who like the Habanero flavour, but not their extreme heat. The Frontera Sweet peppers are Scotch Bonnet shaped, approx. 5 x 5 cm in diameter and mature from green to a bright orange. The flavour is fruity sweet and the heat level is low with sometimes no heat. Their are suitable as a snack, for pickling and filling.
Care: Germination temperature is between 22°C and 30°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.
You can find plenty of useful tips for successfully growing chili plants in our Chili Growing Guide and in the Chili Journal.
