Thai Hot Culinary Chili Seeds
Information: The Thai Hot Culinary Chili originates from Thailand and is a medium hot, upright growing red chili with very thin-walled, about 4 cm long flavourful fruits. The plants grow only about 50 cm tall and are bushy and compact, so they are ideal for pot culture. Very prolific. The chillies are not only suitable for Asian dishes, but are also perfect for drying or making hot sauces and salsas.
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.
