Lombok Red Large Chili Seeds
Information: The Lombok Red Large Chili comes from Indonesia and is a flavourful, red chilli with mild to medium heat. The plants are bushy, reach up to 85cm in height and are very high yielding. The chilies ripen to a bright red and are very flavourful with a slightly sweet taste. They are suitable for fresh consumption, in salads, as snacks, for pickling, stuffing and grilling. An excellent paprika powder can be made from the dried fruits.
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.
