Mem Jolokia Chili Seeds
Information: The Mem Jolokia Chili comes from Assam in northern India and is a special Jolokia variety that produces upright growing small pods that have an intense heat. Mem Jolokia bears peppers in abundance, it is an absolutely incredible producer. This variety will provide you with pods for many months. The chillies ripen from a light green to a bright red. They are great for spicing dishes and also for drying and make a super charge 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.
