Goccia d`Oro Chili Seeds
Information: Goccia d`Oro is an Italian heirloom pepperoni and means "the golden drop". The pods ripen from light green to light yellow and thento an orange-red coulour and reach about 4 x 15 cm in size. Traditionally, they are harvested when they are yellow, then their taste ist most intense, but they also taste good in the red-orange state.
The taste is sweet-fruity with thin skin. They are ideal for stuffing, frying or grilling. The plants grow to about 1 meter and are prolific.
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 50 - 60cm of space between each plant. The main harvest should take place after approximately 3 months` ripening time.
