Management of yellow habanero hot peppers
- Germination temperature is between 22°C and 28°C (germination period: 12-21 days); it is therefore recommended to use a greenhouse or an open field.
- The plants need fresh, well-fertilized, permeable soil, and do not tolerate waterlogging.
- They should be placed in a sunny, protected place with at least 6 hours of sunlight.
- As the plants have a particularly long maturation period, it may be preferable to grow them in a pot, so that you can easily bring the plants inside when the temperature falls below 12°C during the day, allowing all the fruits to ripen.
Planting habanero hot pepper seeds
- If starting in the nursery, allow 7 to 10 weeks for the seeds to mature into seedlings large enough to transplant safely.
- Fertilize when the blooms appear, and water well.
- The fruit is most nutritious if allowed to ripen on the plant.
