Naga Morich Black Chili Seeds
Information: The origin of the Black Naga is Bangladesh like other Nagas. It is a regional variety of the bhut jolokia chili. The productive plants bear dark brown pods with a fine flavour with hints of lemon and smoke. The fruits have very thin outer walls, making them particularly well-suited for drying out. The average heat has been measured between 700,000 - 800,000 Scoville units. When growing, they require a lot of warmth, whilst at the same time the peppers have a very long maturation period, meaning that around 160 days can pass by between planting the seeds and harvesting the fruits.
Care: Germination temperature is between 26°C and 32°C (germination period: 10-21 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.
