Arlecchino Chili Seeds
Information: Arlecchino Chili comes from Italy and means translated "Harlequin Chili". And indeed: dark foliage and the small upright-growing chillies that ripen from black-purple to orange to red, show a beautiful play of colours. The chillies have a medium heat and are suitable for fresh consumption, seasoning, cooking and drying. The plants remain relatively small and are also suitable as a houseplant. Beautiful ornamental plant.
Care: Germination temperature is between 22°C and 28°C (germination period: 8-21 days); it is therefore recommended to use a greenhouse and a heating mat. 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.
