Georgia Black Chili Seeds
Information: The Georgia Black is a cult chili from the United States. It has a high yield, grows compact and bushy and reaches a height of about 90 cm. Numerous of the approx. 10 cm long dark brown ripening pods hang from the plants. The chillies are very aromatic with a decent heat and are well suited for drying, but also for making Hot Sauces, pickling and fresh consumption.
Care: Germination temperature is between 22°C and 28°C (germination period: 8-21 days); it is therefore recommended to use a greenhouse and a heating mat. 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. As the plants have a particularly long maturation period, it is recommended to grow them in a pot, so that you can easily bring the plant inside when the temperature falls below 12°C during the day, allowing all the fruits to ripen. To keep the plant over the winter, cut it back by 20cm after harvesting and place in a light place where it is at least 15°C.
