Avenir Chili Seeds
Information: The Avenir Chili is a Habanero variety with the typical fiery heat and a fruity Habanero aroma. The fruits are folded, become relatively large (sometimes 5-6 cm in diameter) and ripen from light green to orange to red.They are ideal for making salsa, curries, powder and sauces. The plants are up to 1 metre in size and are very productive, as the variety was bred especially for commercial cultivation.
Care: Germination temperature is between 24°C and 30°C (germination period: 12-21 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 placed in a sunny, protected place with at least 6 hours of sunlight - preferably more. 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 plants 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.
