Hello Emma. Glad to know you.

I would like to leave a question about Achocha  but I cant do it on the article. I'm trying here, tell me if I did wrong.

Im  curious  about this plant I just bought from an online site. Rigth now I want to sow it indoors and then move outside around end of April. I live in Milano, northern Italy. A climate like London or Paris. Maybe a bit milder.

I plann to use the scottex method in a warn nursery. Around 24 degrees. You think it's ok?

Thank you . Have a nice day!

Hello,

I don’t know what the scottex method is.

I normally sow my achocha seeds in spring (so April in the UK), without any extra heat.

So if your climate is similar, I would think it is too early to sow them yet. I sow mine at the same time of year as tender beans or squash.

Hope that helps!

Thank you for your fast reply. So they don't need any extra heat. That's good. 

Btw the scottex method is used often to make germinate hot peppers. Basically the seeds are put in a plastic bag between 2 humid sheets of scottex paper (kinda kleenex) and in warm place. They germinate very well.

In this case it doesn't seem necessary.

Regards

Renato

Fascinating, thank you! I haven’t heard of germinating peppers like that.
