Trinidad Scorpion Moruga Black Chili Seeds
Info: The Trindad Scorpion Moruga Black Chili originates from the Caribbean and is a variety of the Trinidad Scorpion Moruga chili. The pods ripen in a dark purple/brown colour, are slightly larger than those of the Red TSM, but just as hot and can clearly be recognised by the spike on the chili`s pointed end. They have a very aromatic and fruity flavour. They are suitable for sauces and drying.
Care: Germination temperature is between 22°C and 30°C (germination period: 6-20 days); it is therefore recommended to use a greenhouse and a heating mat. The plants need fresh, well-fertilised permeable soil and should not be left in standing water. They should be placed in a sunny, sheltered place with at least 6 hours of sunlight per day, if not more. Place the plants outside around 2 to 3 weeks after the last frost.
