Habanero Jolokia Long Chili Seeds
Info: The Habanero Jolokia Long Chili is a new breeding from Bhut Jolokia Red and Habanero Aji Dulce Long. The chilies have an interesting appearance and a strong spiciness with a fantastic flavour. The plants are bushy and reach up to 80 cm in height. They develop numerous long, red, flavourful fruits. They are very suitable for making hot sauces or fruity salsas, and they are also good dried and made into a powder.
Care: The germination temperature is between 22 und 28°C (8 - 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.
