Lokale Sorte Surinam Chili Seeds
Information: This is a chili variety that a friend discovered on a local market in Suriname in South America. It is a red Habanero variety with round, thin-walled, slightly folded fruits which grow to about 3 x 5 cm. They have a very fruity typical Habanero taste with a fiery heat. The plants can grow quite large, 150 cm high are not uncommon.
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.
You can find plenty of useful tips for successfully growing chili plants in our Chili Cultivation Instructions and in the Chili Diary.
