Peruviano Arancio Chili Seeds
Info: The Peruviano Arancio chili belongs to the Capsicum baccatum species and, in accordance with this type, has large plants with branches, and can sometimes also develop a small crown. This variety is extremely high yielding and produces numerous long, orange chillies which develop an intense spiciness. The fruits have an unbelievable flavour, and are wonderful for making into hot sauces and salsa, as well as for pickling.
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. If you plant them outdoors, the plants should have a distance between them of 45 cm.
