Chinese Five Color Chili Seeds
Information: The Chinese Five Color Chili ripens, as the name suggests, very pretty in 5 colours and makes a real eye-catcher on the balcony or the windowsill. The small plants have a dark green foliage, which contrasts nicely with the purple flowers and the upright growing chillies that ripen from green to purple, yellow and orange to red. Perfect for colorful salads or garnish.
Care: Germination temperature is between 22°C and 28°C (germination period: 8-21 days); it is therefore recommended to use a greenhouse and a heating mat. 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. As the plants have a particularly long maturation period, it is recommended to grow them in a pot, so that you can easily bring the plant inside when the temperature falls below 12°C during the day, allowing all the fruits to ripen. To keep the plant over the winter, cut it back by 20cm after harvesting and place in a light place where it is at least 15°C.
