Purple Ufo Chili Seeds
Information: The Purple Ufo Chili is a pretty rare variety with purple and a most incredible shape: like small ufos hanging on the plant. They ripen from dark purple to orange-red to red and have a mild, pleasant heat. The taste is a mixture of sweet apple and paprika and they are excellent for eating raw, grilling or filling, e.g. with cream cheese. The plants are slender, not very branched and can grow very large. One to get.
Care: Germination temperature is between 22°C and 28°C (germination period: 6-20 days); it is therefore recommended to use a greenhouse and a heating mat. The plants need fresh, well-fertilised permeable soil and should not be left in standing water. They should be placed in a sunny, sheltered place with at least 6 hours of sunlight per day, if not more. Place the plants outside around 2 to 3 weeks after the last frost. When you plant the seedlings outdoors, take care to leave at least 45cm of space between each plant.
