Bonda Ma Jaques Chili Seeds
Info: The Bonda Ma Jaques Chili is a rare Habanero variety which originates from the French Antilles, or from Martinique. Bright yellow, long chilies, which are very flavourful and spicy, grow on the bushy plants. The taste is reminiscent of citrus fruits and is lightly sweet with a fantastic scent of exotic fruits. The chilies are suitable for making hot sauces and salsas, and for drying and cooking.
Care: The germination temperature is between 22 und 28°C (12 - 21 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.
