Officially The World's Hottest Chilli!
Botanical Name: Capsicum chinense
Pack quantity: 3 x 9cm Potted Plants
Item code: 52010
Despatch: From 22nd June 2021
Officially the world's hottest chilli and not for the faint hearted! Despite the heat, it has a sweet, fruity flavour with chocolate cherry undertones. (2,200,000 + on SHU- Scoville Heat Unit).
Chilli peppers contain up to SEVEN times the vitamin C level of one orange and are a rich source of vitamins A and E, beta-carotene, folic acid and potassium. They are also known to aid digestion, relieve joint pain and lower blood sugar levels. Super hot varieties such as Trinidad moruga Scorpion Yellow are difficult to grow from seed without specialist equipment. We’ve done all the hard work for you by growing your chilli plants for 4 months in a hot greenhouse with under-bench heating so that you’ll receive large 9cm plants ready for potting on.
How to grow … the HOTTEST Chillies!
1. Heat makes heat! Grow chilli plants indoors or undercover in a consistently hot temperature (Minimum 16°C). They don’t like fluctuating heat or humidity. 2. Growing in pots gives a smaller plant with more fruit but remember to keep the compost moist and once flowering feed regularly with a liquid fertiliser. 3. For maximum heat reduce watering once fruit has formed – this makes the chillies even hotter!
Full growing instructions included.
Please take great care when handling the chillies. We advise that you wear gloves when handling both the fruits and the plants.
