Bih Jolokia - Mini Bhut Chili Seeds
Information: The Bih Jolokia Mini Bhut is a smaller breed of the popular Indian Bih Jolokia. In contrast to the Bih Jolokia, whose pods are 7-8 cm long, this variety only reaches lengths of approx. 4 cm, but it is in no way inferior to its big relatives in heat level and taste.
The Mini Bih Jolokia-Chilis ripen from green through orange to a bright red, they have a rough, uneven surface and a fruity, aromatic flavour. When growing, they require a lot of warmth, whilst at the same time the peppers have a very long maturation period, meaning that around 160 days can pass by between planting the seeds and harvesting the fruits.
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.
