Naga Giant Chili Seeds
Information: The Naga Giant Chili is a type of the Bhut Jolokia and Naga Morich, which come from India and have a fierce pungency. It forms wonderful giant fruits that ripen red. They are thin-walled and slightly rough on the surface. The plants have a vigorous growth and are very productive in good conditions. You should wear gloves when processing the Chillies.
Care: Germination temperature is between 25°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.
