Burning Bush Chili Seeds
Information: The Burning Bush Chili bears many narrow, elongated, red-ripening pods, which have a medium heat and a good taste. Due to its upright growth, the small chili shrub looks a bit as if it was burning. The chillies are ideal for Asian cuisine, for making hot sauces and chili pastes and 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.
