Trinidad Scorpion Moruga Chili Seeds
Information: In 2012, the Trinidad Scorpion Moruga was award the title of being the world`s hottest chili. It was cultivated on Trinidad and Tobago, an island nation off the coast of Venezuela. The measurements of the Chile Pepper Institute of New Mexico State University gave average values of 1,207,764 Scoville heat units with top values of over 2 million SHU, the first time that a chili plant had reached values exceeding 2 million SHU.
The peppers of the Trinidad Scorpion Moruga chili ripen from green to orange and then red, possessing a hot, but also very fruity flavour. The picture shows an unripe moruga chili in its orange state. Unlike the Trinidad Scorpion Red and Butch T varieties, these chili peppers do not develop such a distinctly pointed spike, however, the uneven surface is evocative of the bhut jolokia chili.
Care: Germination temperature is between 24°C and 30°C (germination period: 10-20 days); it is therefore recommended to use a greenhouse and a heating mat is recommended. The plants need fresh, well-fertilised, permeable soil, and do not tolerate waterlogging. They should be planted 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 plant 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.

im Februar bestellt. Schnelle gute Lieferung.
Keimrate ging so. (2 von 5)
Aber dafür sind Sie gut gewachsen und tragen jetzt reichlich Früchte, mehr als ich erwartet habe. Zwei Pflanzen = 27 Früchte. Die ersten sind schon geerntet.
Aber vorsichtig dosieren--------nicht umsonst sind die kleinen mit einen Schärfegrad von 10+ angegeben.
Sehr Pflegeleichte Pflanzen. Kann ich nur empfehlen.
