The Violett Cables Chili Seeds
Information: The Violet Cables Chili comes from the USA and is a beautiful ornamental chili with dark green to dark purple foliage, which provides a nice background to the green to violet to red ripening, upstanding small chillies. The chillies are edible when still green and then taste like a bell pepper, ripened to purple and red, they develop a proper heat. They are ideal for cooking hot sauces, for chili pastes 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.
You can find plenty of useful tips for successfully growing chili plants in our Chili Cultivation Instructions and in the Chili Diary.
