Teapot Red Chili Seeds
Information: The Teapot Red Chili is a very interesting and rare variety with numerous very flavourful and beautiful fruits. The bushy plants are strong growing and protruding, and produce many of the green to yellow to red ripening chillies. These develop a reasonable level of spiciness and a good flavour. They are suitable for hot sauces, cooking, drying and making into chili powder.
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.
You can find plenty of useful tips for successfully growing chili plants in our Chili Cultivation Instructions and in the Chili Diary.
