Red Habanero Surinam Seeds
Information: The habanero species is thought to originate in the Yucatan region in Mexico. Although the name “habanero” can be translated to mean “someone or something from Havana”, the plant is only found growing in isolation on the island of Cuba. Even today, it is primarily grown on the Yucatan peninsula, however it is predominantly orange and yellow habanero varieties grown here. The red variant usually comes from the Caribbean or the southern states of the USA.
The Red Habanero Surinam chili comes from the South American country of Suriname. The thin-walled fruits are round, wrinkled and grow to be approximately 5cm long and 3cm wide. Their shape is similar to that of a mini pepper.When grown with a lot of sunlight, the peppers turn slightly purple in colour, although this disappears as they fully ripen and become red. The Red Habanero Surinam is a robust and fertile plant that can become very large. 150cm to 170cm is not uncommon for this variety.
Care: Germination temperature is between 22°C and 28°C (germination period: 12-21 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. 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.

Leider eher schlechte Keimrate. Nur 2 von 10 Samen gekeimt und recht zögerliches Wachstum.
Keimrate liegt trotz spezieller Anzuchterde und besten Bedingungen leider nur bei 60%. Bin gespannt, wie die sich weiterentwickeln.
Schnelle Lieferung, super keimfähig.
Nach 8 Tagen sind bereits von 9 von 10 Samen gekeimt (beheiztes Mini GW).
Lieferung sehr schnell, 9 von 10 Samen haben gekeimt, Geschmacklich lasse ich mich mal überraschen
