Red Cherry Small Chili Seeds
Information: The Red Cherry Small Chili from Italy is a very high yielding variety with an excellent flavour. The plants are bushy and reach up to approx. 1 metre in height. The numerous fruits grow upright in bundles, are thick-walled, round and flavourful, and ripen from dark green to a full red. They have a pronounced spiciness, and for those who can tolerate spiciness well, are suitable for fresh consumption. They are also excellent for stuffing e.g. with cream cheese, as well as for pickling or cooking.
Care: The germination temperature is between 21 und 28°C (10 - 24 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.
