A very exciting chilli! Both the fruits and leaves are dark purple; the fruits are quite something - beautiful and unusual. Small and elongated they are produced in profusion and gradually turn bright red as they mature. The vigorous plants are compact and bushy, perfect for containers. Be warned - the fruits are extremely hot, so if you're not brave enough to eat them, grow the plants for their spectacular colours all summer long. 30cm high plant
How to Germinate Chilli Seeds
First, do not forget that chillies are subtropical to tropical vegetable plant and love the heat. You MUST ensure that the chilli seeds' soil temperature MUST remain between 28 - 30 °C, 24x7 – Day & Night. So if you live in Australia's cool & temperate climate zone, you need to invest in seedling heat with a thermostat without any doubt. If you don't want to invest in seedling heat mat & thermostat, then you need to wait until summer to start the Chilli. Simply keeping seeds in the greenhouse (which may have a temperature drop below 10 °C on many nights even in late Oct to late November to the many parts of Australia), may yield poor germination result.
Patience is a virtue! It can take up-to minimum 2 weeks to 4 weeks maximum before first seedlings will sprout.
It would be best if you made sure to measure the heat of the soil by putting the thermometer inside the soil of the seedlings. Make sure that soil does not dry out, but make sure they are not too wet either because this will make the seeds susceptible to fungal pathogens
We suggest storing our seeds in the refrigerator in the given plastic clip lock until seeding them up. Please make sure that you do not get any moisture in the bags
And last but not least, the ultra hots chillies are very temperamental and take a great amount of love and care + CONSTANT and EXACT warm soil (28 - 30 °C), 24x7 – Day & Night!
