Feuerküsschen Yellow Chili Seeds
Information: The Feuerküsschen Yellow Chili is a rare German breed and is the spicy relative of the Naschzipfel. The plants are small and are therefore good for cultivation in pots or on the windowsill. They develop long, upright chilies which grow in bundles and ripen from green to yellow. The chilies are not only decorative - they taste great as well. With their moderate level of spiciness they are suitable for medium-spicy dishes like salsas, sauces and dips, but are also good for drying.
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. As the plants have a particularly long maturation period, it is recommended to grow them in a pot, so that you can easily bring the plant inside when the temperature falls below 12°C during the day, allowing all the fruits to ripen. To keep the plant over the winter, cut it back by 20cm after harvesting and place in a light place where it is at least 15°C.
