Firecracker Long Chili Seeds
Info: The Firecracker Chili is a small but very productive variety tha bears lots of small, red, thin chillies. The plants grow approx. 50 - 70 cm in height and are well suited for pot culture on balcony or terrace. The pods are very tasty with a medium heat while the heat can vary strongly from fruit to fruit. The chillies are versatile in use: they are suitable for fresh eating, for the salad, for cooking, drying and pickling.
Care: The germination temperature is between 22 und 28°C (8 - 20 day germination period), therefore the use of a greenhouse and a heating pad is recommended.

Put the plants outside approx. 2 to 3 weeks after the last frost.
