Nepal Snakebite Chili Seeds
Information: The Nepal Snakebite Chili comes - as the name suggests - from Nepal and is as strong as a snake bite. The pods are up to 20 cm long and have a typical chilli taste and a medium to strong heat. The thin fruit walls make them ideal for drying and making chilli powder. The plants grow to a height of approx. 80 cm and are very productive.
Care: Germination temperature is between 22°C and 28°C (germination period: 12-21 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 placed in a sunny, protected place with at least 6 hours of sunlight - preferably more. 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.
