Pimenta da neyde a beautiful and hot chili from Brazil grow well!

Pimenta da neyde is a cross between c. chinense and c. annuum and are originally from Brazil. Both the stems and foliage are getting pretty violet colored elements. Even the rewards will be Dark purple.

What is unique about this variety is that the fruit retains its deep purple color also as mature. The taste is fruity, aromatic with hints of lemon and exotic fruit.

The plants can be large and high but in small pot they fit well on the windowsill. For fruits, you can make a hot purple chili powder.

This year, I run up a 20 number plants. One should I keep myself rest will follow to Stockholm in March to the Fair Nordic Garden 2015.

    Hey Stig!
    I have a question, almost all of my seeds have germinated within the plug brim and sponge cubes, they are about 2 cm and have all 1 bladpar. The remains of the cubes kept easy moist with diluted rotstimulator and 2 comp-nutrition. They stand 15 cm below a amatur with 3×36 w Osram Floura tubes with light 14-16 h/day.
    However, everything ground to a halt and they stand completely still and have done so for over a week, certainly not a millimeter or hint to next bladpar. What can I do? They are cooler now, without heat and without cover in the day, Cap on after watering and face the night.

    With kind regards Christoffer

      Hi! Remove the cover on the nights they like to have a little cooler at night. They are going to get and grow to be patient. When they had their real leaves (character sheet) can you recycle the soil in pots. The first 2 the leaves they get are heart leaf.
