Hot Cherrybomb Chili Seeds
Info: The Hot Cherry Bomb gets its name from the fact that the chilies resemble cherries in their appearance. The plants remain very small (approx. 65 cm in height) and most have a small stem with a protruding crown. The plants usually produce many fruits, ensuring a beautiful sight in the garden or on the balcony. The fruits are very delicious, cherry-sized round peppers with a pleasant spiciness, making them excellent for pickling or stuffing e.g. with cream cheese. The spiciness can vary strongly from fruit to fruit.
Care: The germination temperature is between 20 und 28°C (7 - 20 day germination period), therefore the use of a greenhouse and a heating mat is recommended. 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.
