Thai Prik Sot Chili Seeds
Information: The Thai Prik Sot Chili is a traditional Thai Chili, which should not be missing in Thai cooking. On the large, up to 1.20 meters tall bushes grow lots of up to 10 cm long, thin and red peppers. In Thailand, they are traditionally used in green and red. They have an excellent, slightly flowery chili flavour and a fiery heat. Ripe Thai Prik Sot chillies are very thin-walled and thus highly suitable for drying. Also for Asian cuisine, they are indispensable.
Care: The germination temperature is between 22 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.
