Melrose Chili Seeds
Information: The Melrose Chili is a delicious red pointed pepper without any heat and a heirloom from Italy. The bright red peppers are about 12 cm long, juicy and have a fine flavour. They are suitable for fresh consumption in salads, but also for cooking, roasting or grilling.
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.

Ich habe die Sorten Gorria Chili, Spanischer Pfeffer und Melrose Chili angebaut. Melrose Chili ist die aromatischte, aber auch die schärfste der drei Sorten, obwohl mit Schärfegrad Null angegeben.
