Fluorescent Purple Chili Seeds
Information: The Fluorescent Purple Chili is a beautiful ornamental chili with black leaves, and initially dark purple-black small oval fruits that ripen to a bright red colour. That gives a wonderful contrast. The flowers are purple too. The chillies are thin-walled and have an intense 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.
