Hot Portugal Chili Seeds
Information: The Hot Portugal Chili has a very high yield of fruits and originally comes from Portugal. It produces large fruits up to 15cm in length and approximately 2-3cm wide with a medium level of heat. The plants are well-suited for cultivating in a pot as they do not sprawl or grow too large. An early harvest and the large number of fruits produced make this variety are a very popular recommendation for growing at home in your garden.
The peppers ripen very quickly from green to red. You can eat them whilst they are still green, but their full flavour does not fully develop until they have completely ripened. Hot Portugal Chilies are perfect for stuffing with a delicious filling, pickling, preserving or using in salads. As the peppers have a very thin outer wall, they are also well-suited to drying.
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 30-40cm of space between each plant.
