Hot Pepper Scotch Bonnet Red
A popular Habanero type pepper which measure 2.5-4cm long and 2.5-3cm wide.
Very hot with strong pungency. The fruits mature from green to red
Sow early December-January Under glass, or for maincrop March - April. Spacing 30-60cm x 45-90cm.
The seeds germinate between 25 and 30°C.
Grow on at 16-23°C. The seeds require good ventilation so do not further cover the seeds in bags/propagators unless absolutely necessary.
Harvest from early April/May, or maincrop from July.
Only water when the soil around the roots is dry as overwatering can produce a smaller crop of more sour tasting fruits. A ph level in the growing media that is slightly acidic is useful.
The seeds do not need sunlight to germinate, but once they sprout you need to place them under fluorescent lights for 10 to 16 hours per day. You can reduce the temperature to 70 degrees after they sprout.
A liquid feed with a good quality Tomato feed will be envigorate the plants once they are established but do not overwater/feed.
This variety may grow outdoors but they are best used as a greenhouse crop or perhaps on a nice sunny windowledge!!!
