NuMex Twilight Chili Seeds
Info: The NuMex Twilight Chili is a breeding of theChile Pepper Institute at New Mexico State University and a real stunner. Countless smal, upstanding chillies grow on bushy plants and mature in a beautiful colour play of the sunset from white, to purple, yellow and orange to red. The pods are 1 x 2 cm large and very hot and are well suited for sauces, salsas, and for drying. In pots, the plants stay small (about 30 cm) and are ideal for window sills; outdoors they reach heights of 75 cm.
Care: The germination temperature is between 20 und 28°C (8 - 21 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.
