Information: The Big Bang Chocolate Chilli is an extremely hot variant of the Indian Naga Morich Chilli and has a corresponding boom. The plants grow bushy and get about 70-100 cm tall. The chocolate brown pods are elongated, slightly folded and have a rough surface. Besides being really hot, they have a slightly fruity flavour. The chillies are particularly suitable for making chilli powder, Hot sauces and for spicing up cooking.
Care: Germination temperature is between 22°C and 28°C (germination period: 10-21 days); it is therefore recommended to use a greenhouse and a heating mat. The plants need fresh, well-fertilised, permeable soil, and do not tolerate waterlogging. They should be planted in a sunny, protected place with at least 6 hours of sunlight – preferably more. As the plants have a particularly long maturation period, it is recommended to grow them in a pot, so that you can easily bring the plant inside when the temperature falls below 12°C during the day, allowing all the fruits to ripen. To keep the plant over the winter, cut it back by 20cm after harvesting and place in a light place where it is at least 15°C.
