Habanero Grenada Tobago Seasoning Chili Seeds
Info: The Habanero Grenada Tobago Seasoning Chili is a Habanero with a medium level of spiciness, but with the fruity flavour typical of Habaneros. For all those who don’t like it too fiery. The plants are bushy but don’t grow too large, and so are suitable for cultivation in pots. They produce a variety of fruits that are initially green and then ripen through orange to a dark red colour. The spiciness is somewhat comparable to Jalapenos, but this can vary. The chillies are suitable for fresh consumption, for salads, for pickling and for cooking.
Care: The germination temperature is between 22 und 28°C (8 - 21 day germination period), therefore the use of a greenhouse and a heating mat is recommended. The plants need fresh, well-fertilised, permeable soil, and do not tolerate waterlogging. They should be placed 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 plants 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.
