Apocalypse Red Chili Seeds
Information: Apocalypse Red Chili is an Italian breed and its appearance is like a combination of Ghost Pepper, Trinidad Moruga Scorpion, and Carolina Reaper all wrapped into one pepper. Although the official Scoville Heat Units for the Apocalypse Scorpion are still unknown, this variety might be able to compete with Carolina Reaper, which averages about 1.4 and 2.2 million Scoville. This pods ripen to bright red and can be really pimpled with all kinds of contorted shapes / looks. They have a a fruity flavour and an incredibly spicy heat level.
Care: Germination temperature is between 24°C and 308°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.
