A very hot pepper extremely pungent plants reach up to 1 meter under cover. High yielding.

Sowing & Growing

Sow early December-January, or for main crop March- April.

Sow the seed into compost either into a seed tray or into modules with a temperature between 20-24oC and cover with a light layer of compost. Germination typically takes 14 - 21 days. Cover the compost with clear plastic film which helps raise the temperature aiding germination.

Once seedlings emerge they do not require quite as much heat, temperatures can be reduced to 18oC by day and no lower than 16oC at night.

It is best to re-pot in stages before their final pot size. Once in final pot size plants may need staking for support. Water regularly but be careful not to over water, surface of compost can be allowed to dry out slightly between watering.

Please note that germination can be slow and erratic on some open pollinated hot peppers.

Harvesting

Hot peppers can be harvested from green or once ripened into yellow, orange or red. A Hot Pepper?s heat usually intensifies with maturity. Once ripe fruits can remain on plant in good condition until temperatures begin to drop.
