Naga Dorset Orange Chili Seeds
Information: The Dorset Naga Chili Orange is a variation of the Naga Morich from Bangladesh bred in the English region of Dorset. With up to 1.5 million SHU, it is one of the hottest chillies in the world. The scorching heat of the fruit is combined with a distinctive fruity aroma, making this a truly exceptional chilli. The wrinkled, wedge-shaped fruit ripen from green to dark orange, and can be up to 70mm in size. The plants are tall and ungainly, and when grown in very large pot can reach a height of 1.5m or more. Grown in smaller pots, however, their height can be considerably reduced.
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.
