Pretty in Purple Chili Seeds
Info: The Pretty in Purple Mini-Chili is a decorative and piquant variety, which is ideal for balcony, terrace or window sill. The chili lives up to ones name: not only the leaves, but also the flowers and the fruits show all shades of purple. The small upright pods mature from purple to red and have an intense heat. They are suitable for the seasoning dishes as well as for drying and powder production.
Care: The germination temperature is between 20 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.
