Kitchenpepper Chili Seeds
Info: The Kitchenpepper Chili is a very interesting, rarely offered chili which resembles Scotch Bonnet - although it otherwise doesn’t have anything in common with it. This is probably where its other name, Early Scotch Bonnet, comes from. The chillies grow upright on the bushy plants with crowns, and after 65 - 75 days ripen to a full red. As their name would imply, they are good for use in the kitchen, and air drying is also possible, as they have relatively thin fruit walls.
Care: The germination temperature is between 22 und 28°C (8 - 21 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.
