Jimmy Nardellos Chili Seeds
Information: The Jimmy Nardellos Chili is an Italian heirloom pepper with up to 15 cm long, red ripening, aromatic chili peppers. The plants are relatively robust and therefore well suited for our latitudes. They are very productive and bear a huge amount of the delicious fruits already after a rather short ripening period. The peperonis can also be eaten already green or used for pickling. However, they reach their fine, sweet, aromatic flavor only in the fully ripe, red state.
Care: Germination temperature is between 22°C and 26°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.
