C05482 Pen 3-1 Chili Seeds
Information: This chili is a variety of the species Capsicum baccatum (tree chili) of unknown origin. The plants grow tall and strong and get about 100 cm tall. They carry elongated, initially upright growing fruits that lower later and turn to red when mature. They are thick-walled, medium-hot and have a fruity and good flavour. It is worthwhile to overwinter the plants, they carry significantly more in the second year.
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.
