Black Scorpions Tongue Chili Seeds
Information: The Black Scorpions Tongue Chili is a prolific variety, whose small, elongated fruits ripen from green to dark purple and black to red. Due to the colour change and the different coloured chillies on the plant, it is a nice splash of colour in the garden or on the balcony. Also the flowers are light violet. The chillies mature relatively quickly and therefore this variety is also suitable for outdoor cultivation in our latitudes.
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.
