Fidalgo Roxa Chili Seeds
Information: The Fidalgo Roxa Chili comes from Brazil and is one of the best looking peppers you can grow. The pods have the shape of a small, elongated lantern, are about 4 cm long and look like candies. They ripen with an amazing colour-play with purple-green color when immature and purple-pink color when mature. Very decorative and the taste is also very good: fruity with a medium heat. The plants grow up to 80 cm tall, have violet-tinged foliage and are very productive.
Care: Germination temperature is between 22°C and 28°C (germination period: 6-20 days); it is therefore recommended to use a greenhouse and a heating mat. The plants need fresh, well-fertilised permeable soil and should not be left in standing water. They should be placed in a sunny, sheltered place with at least 6 hours of sunlight per day, if not more. Place the plants outside around 2 to 3 weeks after the last frost. When you plant the seedlings outdoors, take care to leave at least 50 - 60cm of space between each plant. The main harvest should take place after approximately 3 months` ripening time.
