Habanero Craigs Double Hot Chili Seeds
Information: The Craig`s Double Hot Habanero is a very hot Habanero variety with pretty, bright orange fruits that are a little elongated. The chillies are very juicy and flavorful with the typical fruity Habanero taste, plus the ultra-fiery heat. The plants grow to about 80 to 90 cm in height and should be placed in a sheltered place, preferably in a tub on the wall of the house with sun all day long.
Care: Germination temperature is between 22°C and 28°C (germination period: 8-21 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 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. 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.
