Yucatan Habanero Chili Seeds
Information: The Yucatan Habanero Chili is grown on the Mexican peninsula Yucatan and its fruits are slightly larger and darker than those of the famous Habanero Orange. The orange pods have a typical, intense and fruity Habanero flavour with an infernally heat. The plants thank regular fertilizing and a warm place with rich yields. The Habaneros harmonize excellently with tropical fruits and are particularly suitable for the production of salsas and sauces, but also for drying and grounding to chilli powder.
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.
