A rare variation of a 7 Pot, the Barrackpore is a little bit sweet but has more punch than its relatives. This chilli is still amongst the hottest in the world, even hotter than the 7 Pot standard; this elongated chilli has dimples and a wrinkly appearance. On the larger side of the 7 Pot chilli, the Barrackpore gets to be about 7-8cm and sometimes grows a tail, like a scorpion chilli. This plant will grow to be about 120cm tall and is very productive. The 7 Pot varieties are named for the ability to spice up 7 pots of stew with one pod.

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!

CHILLI - Trinidad

Have managed to germinate a few. Growing in a hydroponic grow tower now. Still small but there hasn't been a lot of sun here lately. I think they will do ok.
