Heatwave Chili Seeds
Info: The Heatwave Chili comes from India and is a beautiful and rarely offered variety with elongated, bright yellow orange ripening chillies. The bushy plants are about 85 cm tall and bear masses of very hot pods. They are suitable for cooking, drying and filling, especially with cream cheese.
Care: The germination temperature is between 22 und 28°C (8 - 20 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.
