Thai Denchai Chili Seeds
Information: The Thai Denchai Chili is a medium hot chili from the northeast of Thailand. The longish up to 15 cm long red pods have a full aroma and are versatile, especially in Asia and Thai cuisine. They are also well suited for drying and chili powder production. The variety is really robust and uncomplicated in cultivation and therefore also suitable for chili beginners.
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.
