Basket of Fire Chili Seeds
Info: The `Basket of Fire` chili wonderfully productive and decorative chilli pepper plant. This colourful variety becomes smothered with small, hot chillies which mature from green to creamy white to a deep purple through orange to a bright red, creating a fabulous basket of fiery chili pods. The about 6 cm long, upright chili pods have a fruity sweet pepper taste and a fiery heat. The unique, bushy and small (35 - 40 cm) growing habit makes it perfect for hanging baskets, pots and containers.
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 45cm of space between each plant.
You can find plenty of useful tips for successfully growing chili plants in our Chili Growing Guide and in the Chili Journal.
