Barbados Pepper Chili Seeds
Information: The Barbados Pepper comes from the Caribbean and belongs to the variety Capsicum chinense. The bright red, juicy fruits are thus extremely hot. The plants are highly productive, some hang so full of chillies that the side branches have to be supported. The thin-walled fruits have a wonderful fruity flavour, sauces made from them bring Caribbean flair to the kitchen and you feel like on holiday.
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.
You can find plenty of useful tips for successfully growing chili plants in our Chili Cultivation Instructions and in the Chili Diary.
