Born Fire Chili Seeds
Information: The Born Fire Chili is a thankful breed in cultivation, it even tolerates outdoor cultivation, but like all chillies it needs a very sunny and very sheltered place. Then the plants produce a large number of bright red, shiny, elongated chillies. These are excellent for seasoning when cooking, but also for drying and making chili powder.
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.
