Lanterna de Foc Orange Chili Seeds
Info: The Lanterna de Foc Chili originates from Kosovo. The plants grow bushy, often have many branches, and produce numerous long, orange coloured, narrow chillies. The chillies have a medium level of spiciness and are flavourful. The chillies are suitable for cooking, pickling and drying, and for making into a beautiful bright orange coloured powder.
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.
