Chiclayo Chili Seeds
Info: The Chiclayo Chili pepper comes from Peru and is one of the smaller chiles from this region. The bushy plants grow to about 60 cm high and carry the pretty 3-4 cm long pods that ripen from green to a light peachy orange. They have a distinctly fruity flavour with a medium to fiery heat. They are great in sauces, salads and salsa.
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.
