Cascabella Chili Seeds
Info: The Cascabella Chili originates from Mexico and is a high-yielding, large growing plant with bright red, small, drop shaped chilies, which grow upright. The name Cascabella means “Rattle” in English, and comes from the fact that the seeds loosen from the fruit when dried, and when shaken the chilies sound like a rattle. The fruits have a slightly spiciness and are almost exclusively dried and made into a delicious powder which can then be used for numerous dishes.
Care: The germination temperature is between 22 und 28°C (8 - 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.
