Teja is a very rare and fantastic variety of the Indian Guntur (Cayenne) chilli family from Andhra Pradesh. This is one of the most famous chillies in the world and is widely in demand in India and worldwide.
The chilli carries a lovely peppery taste as we find in many Indian chillies and comes with a heat of around 60,000-100,000 sHU.
These are also one of the best chillies to dry due to its thin but robust skin.
Plant Care Tips
Sow a few seeds into a tray from late January 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 it 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 it into as large a pot as it allows, which will determine the plant's size. 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)
