Fuego Chili Seeds
Info: The Fuego Chili is a Cayenne variety from Italy. The name “Fuego” means “fire”. The fiery red, long and pointed chilies grow close together on the 80 cm high plants. This variety is suitable for growing in pots as well as outdoors. The flavourful chilies can be used in a variety of ways: they can be eaten fresh, e.g. in a salad, stuffed, pickled or dried.
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.
