Habanero Batusta Chili Seeds
Info: The Habanero Batusta chili is a Habanero variety from the USA which ripens to a beautiful yellow-orange. The chilies have the typical Habanero exotic-fruity flavour, are thin-walled, juicy and slightly wrinkled. The plants are bushy, require a great deal of sunlight and regular doses of fertiliser, and have a high yield. They are suitable for hot sauces, cooking, pickling, drying and making into chili powder.
General Info: The Habanero variety probably comes from the Yucatan region of Mexico. While the name “Habanero” means “from Havana” in English, they are only found occasionally in Cuba. They are still mainly cultivated on the Yucatan peninsula, although there they are predominantly orange and yellow Habanero varieties. The red varieties mostly come from the Caribbean or the southern states of the USA.
Care: The germination temperature is between 22 und 28°C (8 - 20 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 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.
