Peter Pepper Orange Chili Seeds
Information: The Peter Pepper Orange Chili (also known as the Penis Chili) comes from the USA and is a very remarkable variety with a truly unique appearance. The plant’s “hot” peppers – pun intended – are real eye-catchers on your dining table. Of course, this is just one of the reasons why they are a popular variety for preserving in schnapps or vinegar – their suggestive shape is guaranteed to cause gasps of surprise and raised eyebrows every time.
The distinctive fruits (some are more explicit, others less so) ripen from green to orange and can grow to sizes of approximately 2.5 x 10-15cm. The chili plant has a clearly ramified, bushy growth form. They have a fruity taste of sweet peppers with an intense spicy heat.
Care: Germination temperature is between 22°C and 28°C (germination period: 8-20 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. The earliest time to place the plants outside is 2 to 3 weeks after the last frost. The plants are also easy to take care of throughout the winter if they are grown in pots. It might be necessary to cut them back slightly and place them in a light place where it is at least 15°C.
As of spring 2015, we also offer a wide range of pre-grown chili plants, including the Peter Pepper Orange Chili: Buy chili plants.
As of mid-2015, we also offer peter pepper chili powder.
