Ethiopian Brown Chili Seeds
Info: The Ethiopian Brown Chili is a rare variety from the Ethiopian highlands. The approx. 1 metre large plants develop many of the 10-15 cm long, medium-spicy fruits, which ripen from dark green to dark brown. The fruits have a very good flavour with a medium level of spiciness, and are suitable for making hot sauces, for cooking, seasoning, smoking and drying. This variety is also fantastic for making into a powder.
Care: The germination temperature is between 22 und 28°C (8 - 21 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.
