Tequila Sunrise Chili Seeds
Information: The Tequila Sunrise Chili originates from the USA and reminds when maturing with its play of colors of the drink of the same name. The chilies grow partly upright, partly hanging and mature in a bright orange. They are thin-walled yet juicy and have a mild heat. They are suitable for fresh consumption as well as for drying or pickling.
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.
