Maya Flame Red Chili Seeds
Info: The Maya Flame Red Chili is a decorative, small variety which is an eye-catcher when grown on the windowsill or balcony. The bushy plants remain compact and small (approx. 45cm) and develop numerous upright growing, bright red and long fruits. The chilies have a moderate level of spiciness and can be used for cooking, pickling and drying.
Care: The germination temperature is between 20 und 28°C (8 - 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.
