Description

Chilli Biquinho, also known as “Little Beak Pepper,” is a delightful variety to grow due to its unique shape and mild, sweet flavor. Here are some tips for growing them successfully:

  1. Climate and Location: Chilli Biquinho plants thrive in warm weather and plenty of sunlight. Ensure they receive at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight daily. They can be grown both in containers and in the ground, but make sure the soil is well-draining.
  2. Soil Preparation: Use nutrient-rich, well-draining soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH level (around 6.0 to 7.0). You can amend the soil with compost or well-rotted manure to improve its fertility and texture.
  3. Planting: Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date in your area. Transplant seedlings outdoors once the weather warms up and all danger of frost has passed. Space the plants about 18-24 inches apart to allow for proper air circulation.
  4. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water the plants deeply once or twice a week, depending on the weather and soil conditions. Avoid overhead watering to prevent fungal diseases.
  5. Fertilization: Fertilize the plants with a balanced fertilizer or one formulated for peppers, following the manufacturer’s instructions. You can also side-dress the plants with compost or organic matter during the growing season to provide additional nutrients.
  6. Support: Depending on the variety, Chilli Biquinho plants may benefit from staking or caging to support their growth, especially once they start producing fruit.
  7. Pruning: Regularly pinch off any dead or yellowing leaves to promote air circulation and prevent disease. You can also prune the plants to encourage bushier growth and higher yields.
  8. Harvesting: Chilli Biquinho peppers typically mature in 70-90 days after transplanting. Harvest the peppers when they are fully ripe and bright red in color. Simply snip them off the plant using clean scissors or pruners.

By following these tips, you should be able to grow healthy and productive Chilli Biquinho plants and enjoy a bountiful harvest of delicious peppers.
