Macapa Red Chili Seeds
Information: The Macapa Red Chili is a Capsicum chinense type from Northeastern Brazil. The small chillies have a pumpkin shape with slight wrinkles and look like a small ox heart tomato. They are very hot and tasty with a juicy pulp. Therefore, they are not suitable for drying, but they taste great consumed fresh or pickled, stuffed or in spicy dishes and hot sauces.
Care: Germination temperature is between 22°C and 28°C (germination period: 8-21 days); it is therefore recommended to use a greenhouse and a heating mat. 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. As the plants have a particularly long maturation period, it is recommended to grow them in a pot, so that you can easily bring the plant inside when the temperature falls below 12°C during the day, allowing all the fruits to ripen. To keep the plant over the winter, cut it back by 20cm after harvesting and place in a light place where it is at least 15°C.
You can find plenty of useful tips for successfully growing chili plants in our Chili Cultivation Instructions and in the Chili Diary.
