Big Ball Red Chili Seeds
Information: The Big Ball Red Chili is a pretty, small variety which is particularly eye-catching on the windowsill or balcony. The bushy plants remain compact and small (approx. 45cm) and develop numerous upright growing, bright red, round to oval-shaped fruits. The chilies have a good level of spiciness and can be used for cooking, pickling as well as drying.
Care: The germination temperature is between 20 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.
Tips for successful chili cultivation can be found in our Chili Cultivation Instructions and in the Chili Diary.
