Habanero Hot Bone Chili Seeds
Information: The Habanero Hot Bone Chili has an atypical shape for a Habanero, it is elongated and pointed, slightly folded. It matures from green to ivory ("bone") and orange to red and offers a beautiful play of colours. The fruits have a fiery heat and the typical fruity Habanero aroma. The thin-walled fruits are suitable for seasoning, for salsas and sauces and for drying and chili powder production.
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.
