Pumpkin Pepper Chili Seeds
Info: Their name says it all: the fruits of the Pumpkin Pepper Chili look like small mini pumpkins which ripen from green to orange to red - an extremely rare and very beautiful variety, which is also very high yielding. When they are dried, they become firm and do not lose their shape, thus making them suitable for decorational purposes. The plants reach up to one metre in height and remain relatively light. The chillies have a moderate level of spiciness, and can be used for cooking, seasoning, drying and for decoration.
Care: The germination temperature is between 20 und 28°C (7 - 20 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.
