Goat Weed Chili Seeds
Information: The Goat`s Weed Chili from Venezuela is also known as Black Cobra. It is quite undemanding and is ideal for pot culture. The up to 200 cm high plant makes hairy, grayish leaves. After flowering, it produces many of the small, elongated and upright-growing red chilies. The plants can easily cope with a slightly cooler climate. The thin-walled chilies are ideal for sharpening dishes and for drying.
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.
