Habanero Red Palmera Chili Seeds
Information: The Habanero Red Palmera produces small, almost drop-shaped fruits, which also do not have the typical ribs of their Habanero relatives. Their fruit walls are a bit thicker than the typical Habanero varieties. They are ideal for pickling, stuffing and of course for seasoning dishes.
The habanero species is thought to originate in the Yucatan region in Mexico. Although the name "habanero" can be translated to mean "someone or something from Havana", the plant is only found growing in isolation on the island of Cuba. Even today, it is primarily grown on the Yucatan peninsula, however it is predominantly orange and yellow habanero varieties grown here. The red variant usually comes from the Caribbean or the southern states of the USA.
Care: Germination temperature is between 22°C and 28°C (germination period: 12-21 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. 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.
