Habanero Mustard Chili Seeds
Info: The Habanero Mustard variant is a breeding from the USA and displays an interesting colour sequence: The fruits ripen from green to violet to orange / mustard coloured. Unusually for a Habanero, they are relatively thick-fleshed, and are accordingly juicy. They have a fruity flavour and are therefore excellent for making salsas or hot sauces, for cooking and for drying.
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.
