Habanada Red Chili Seeds
Information: The Habanada Red Chili is just right for anyone who wants all the floral fruity flavour of the Habanero, but without blewing your mouth up - a HABAnero without heat (NADA). Habanada is the product of natural breeding techniques at Cornell University in the USA. Since 2014, this exotic new pepper is sure to be the darling of the culinary scene, making it an excellent choice for market farmers, chefs and foodies. The pods are about 5 cm tall and ripen from lime green to florescent orange. The plants grow bushy up to 90 cm in size. They are vigorous and are remarkably productive in average garden soil.
Care: Germination temperature is between 22°C and 28°C (germination period: 6-20 days); it is therefore recommended to use a greenhouse and a heating mat. The plants need fresh, well-fertilised permeable soil and should not be left in standing water. They should be placed in a sunny, sheltered place with at least 6 hours of sunlight per day, if not more. Place the plants outside around 2 to 3 weeks after the last frost. When you plant the seedlings outdoors, take care to leave at least 50 - 60cm of space between each plant. The main harvest should take place after approximately 3 months` ripening time.
