Habanero Zavory Red Chili Seeds
Info: The Habanero Zavory Red Chili is anextremely high-yielding Habanero variety with a fantastic, fruity flavour. The 4 x 6 cm large fruits, which resemble small, long peppers with smooth, wrinkled, thin walls, grow on bushy plants. They contain plenty of juice and develop a reasonable level of spiciness. In the kitchen they are typically used for making sauces and marinades, but due to their thin fruit walls they are also good for drying and making into chili powder.
General Info: The Habanero variety probably comes from the Yucatan region of Mexico. While the name “Habanero” means “from Havana” in English, they are only found occasionally in Cuba. They are still mainly cultivated on the Yucatan peninsula, although there they are predominantly orange and yellow Habanero varieties. The red varieties mostly come from the Caribbean or the southern states of the USA.
Care: The germination temperature is between 22 und 28°C (8 - 20 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. Put the plants outside approx. 2 to 3 weeks after the last frost.
