Billy Goat Chili Seeds
Info: The Billy Goat chili is a very spicy rarity from the Caribbean. The plants grow relatively large, and are robust and high yielding. They develop numerous beautiful shaped, pointed fruits, which ripen to a bright red. They are very spicy, have a fruity and smoky flavour, and are suitable for making hot sauces and for cooking and drying.
Care: The germination temperature is between 22 und 28°C (8 - 22 day germination period), therefore the use of 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.
