Ljuti Chili Seeds
Info: The Ljuit chili pepper is a widely used and popular Cayenne variety from Croatia. Ljuti in Croatian means hot so not the most creative juices went into naming it, but who cares, it tastes fantastic. The yellow fruits grow upwards and look great in their clusters. Taste wise they have a terrific zingy lemony pepper freshness that will have you coming back for more. The Ljuti is a great one for dried seasonings.
Care: The germination temperature is between 22 und 28°C (8 - 20 day germination period), therefore the use of a greenhouse and a heating mat is recommended. 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.
