Kashmir Chili Seeds
Info: Along with the Bhut Jolokia, the Kashmir Chili is the most well-known Chili variety in India. The chilies are cultivated not only in Kashmir, but across the whole of India. Numerous long, winding chillies, which have a velvety smooth taste with a light sweetness and a moderate level of spiciness, grow on the bushy, approx. 75 cm large plants. This variety can be made into a fine deep red chili powder, and is one of the best Cayenne varieties around. This variety is excellent when dried and made into a powder. It is also good for cooking and seasoning.
Care: The germination temperature is between 22 und 28°C (8 - 21 day germination period), therefore the use of a greenhouse and a heating mat is recommended. 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.
