Fatalii Peach Chili Seeds
Information: The fatalii variety belongs to the Capsicum chinense family, which also produces the habanero chili and many of the hottest types of chili in the world. It originates from Central Africa, it is believed that it was brought over and cultivated by slaves returning home from the Caribbean.
Growing on bushes up to 70cm in height, the peppers have the typically pointed shape of this variety. Ripening from green to peach, these peppers grow to 6-8cm in length and approximately 3cm in diameter. Unlike other members of this chili family, the spicy heat of the fatalii chili hits you immediately with a powerful kick that lasts for a long time. On top of this, you get a distinctive, rich citrus flavour that makes the fatalii chili the perfect ingredient for delicious salsas with exotic fruits. Thanks to the pepper`s thin outer walls, they are also well-suited to drying out.
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. As the plants have a particularly long maturation period, it is recommended to grow them in a pot, so that you can easily bring the plant inside when the temperature falls below 12°C during the day, allowing all the fruits to ripen. 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.
