How to grow Chili pepper 'Purria'

  • Full Sun

  • Medium

Try to plant in a location that enjoys full sun and remember to water moderately. Keep in mind when planting that Purria is thought of as half hardy, so it will need protecting in periods of cold weather. Ideally plant in loamy and sandy soil and try to keep the ph of your soil between the range of 7.0 and 8.5 as Purria likes to be in neutral soil to weakly alkaline soil.

Growing Purria from seed

Aim to sow 0.2 inches (0.5 cm) deep and try to ensure a gap of at least 1.95 inches (5.0 cm). Soil temperature should be kept higher than 18°C / 64°F to ensure good germination.

Transplanting Purria

Ensure that temperatures are mild and all chance of frost has passed before planting out, as Purria is a half hardy plant.
