Description

Packet Content 8 seeds

In spite of its slightly confusing name, Aji Habanero is a pure Capsicum baccatum variety. The plants are easy to grow, with an open growth habit, and produce an abundant crop of rich orange chillies which ripen early in the season. Excellent for eating fresh when the flavour can be really appreciated, they also dry extremely well. Rating 500-2,000 SHU (Rating measured in Scoville heat units - SHU. The higher the rating the hotter the chilli).

  • Thin walled and crisp with a mild heat but a rich complex flavour

Using a good quality, moist seed compost, sow your seeds in a propagator and cover with 6mm (¼") compost. Place on a windowsill or in a greenhouse at approximately 21-24ºC (70-75 ºF) to germinate, usually 5-7 days. Transfer seedlings into 7.5cm (3") pots and grow on. Performs well in a large pot on a patio or most productive when grown in a greenhouse. Plant out in a sunny, sheltered position 50cm (20") apart after risk of frost has passed. Support your plants as the fruit develops. Feed regularly with a proprietary fertiliser. Pick fruits yellow/orange. Sowing to Cropping: 22 Weeks
