Shakira Chili Seeds
Info: The Shakira Chili is a productive chili pepper variety with many long, slender and tapered pods that mature in a bright red. The plants are robust and also get along well with outdoor conditions. The chillies have a relatively short ripening period of 60-70 days and taste spicy and hot. They are thin-walled and can also be used for drying. The strain is resistant to the tobacco moasaik virus.
Care: Germination temperature is between 22°C and 30°C (germination period: 6-20 days); it is therefore recommended to use a greenhouse and a heating mat. The plants need fresh, well-fertilised permeable soil and should not be left in standing water. They should be placed in a sunny, sheltered place with at least 6 hours of sunlight per day, if not more. Place the plants outside around 2 to 3 weeks after the last frost.
