Biquinho Amarelo Chili Seeds
Info: The Biquinho chili varieties from Brazil are pronounced bee-KEE-nyo and Biquinho Amarelo means "little yellow beak". The bright yellow 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 plants grow 70 to 90 cm high and are high yielding.
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.
