Aji Ahuachapan Chili Seeds
Info: The Aji Ahuachapau (or also Ahuachapan) chili originates from El Salvador and comes from the Capsicum baccatum species. Typical for this type is the large, powerful and protruding growth with a high yield. As the plants are very robust, this variety is also suitable for chili newcomers. The fruits are long, approx. 3 x 12 cm, and ripen to an intense orange-red. They have a fruity flavour and a medium level of spiciness, and are particularly suitable for fruity, spicy sauces e.g. with fish, vegetables or chicken. The chillies are also good dried or pickled.
Care: The germination temperature is between 20 und 28°C (7 - 20 day germination period), therefore the use of a greenhouse and a heating mat is recommended. 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. Put the plants outside approx. 2 to 3 weeks after the last frost.
