Aji Cajamarca Chili Seeds
Info: The Aji Cajamarca chilli comes from Peru and the elongated pods ripen in a pretty play of colours from light purple to yellow and orange to red. In its native country it is not only popular for its beautiful colours, but also for its pleasant fruity flavour, similar to an habanero, but with hints of lemon. The plants grow about 75 cm high and are very productive.
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.
