Brigit Lou Orange Chili Seeds
Information: The Birgit Lou Orange Chili belongs to the species Capsicum baccatum ("Tree Chilli"), which originates in the South American Andes. The large and robust plants carry lots of longish pods that ripen from green to a bright orange. They grow up to 8 cm long and have a very fragrant, slightly sweet taste in addition to the intense heat. They are suitable for cooking, for making fruity salsas and sauces and for drying and grounding to chilli powder.
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. 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.
