Chilli (Tabasco) seeds

    • Heat Level: 30,000-50,000 Scoville Units (Warm)
    • Species: Capsicuum Frutescens
    • Origin: Mexico 
    • Pod Description: These are conical and upward facing pods and only grow to around 5cm long and 1-1.5cm wide, maturing through from green to yellow and finally red, they can be used at any stage but traditionally they are used when red as this is when you get the best flavour and heat levels
    • All seeds are germination trialled
    • Seeds are supplied in bio-degradable/recyclable packaging
    • Sow a few seeds into a tray in late February to May and cover lightly with seed compost
    • Either use a heated propagator or pop the seed tray into an enclosed plastic bag and seal and place on a windowsill
    • Once the seedling has produced two true leaves (second set of leaves) they can be transplanted into individual pots
    • Try and maintain around 20-25 degrees while young plants
    • As the plant grows, transplant into as large a pot as allows, this will determine the size of the plant
    • Once the plant has flowered and has started to produce small chillies, it will benefit from a feed of either comfrey tea or tomato feed
    • Chillies dislike irregular watering as this will sometimes cause blossom end rot (the base of the chilli/pepper rots)
