Habanero Mixture Seeds: A Multicoloured Bonanza!

These Habanero chili seeds produce red, orange, and green fruits usually, but many other colours may also appear—ranging in both flavour and spiciness. At their coolest, expect them to sit around the 100K mark on the Scoville scale. At their hottest, they can reach around 350K, meaning they can be pretty spicy.

Related to the famous Scotch Bonnet chili, Habanero chilies have rich and varied flavours, making them perfect for use in both meals and sauces. In South America, they are used to make salsa. Despite the differences between individual chilies, they are similar enough that they can be used together without much consideration, meaning they are easy to cook with. What’s more, each of the varieties should be ready to harvest at around the same time.

How To Grow Habanero Chilies

  • Step 1: Germination

To germinate Habanero chili seeds, bury them about 1cm in soil and cover them lightly. You can plant chili seeds directly into their final pots, which makes the process pretty straightforward. A bigger pot means a bigger harvest, but the plant will take longer to reach maturity. So deciding on pot size comes down to how much space you have available and how little patience you have.

Cover the pot in cling film and poke some holes in it. This keeps the humidity high, which is essential to germinating chili seeds. The soil must also stay moist, but it’s important not to get it too wet, as this can kill the seedling. Habaneros like warm temperatures—25–28°C is perfect for germination.

Germination times can vary a lot, from a few days to some weeks, so be patient.

  • Step 2: Patience

Once the seedlings appear, remove the cling film and place them in a space where they have access to plenty of light. Continue to water them as you would a normal house plant. Chilies thrive in hot and humid environments.

Use a tomato feed to keep them fertilised, and perhaps add a little extra calcium in the form of a foliar spray to prevent blossom-end rot.

How and When To Harvest Habanero Chilies

These mixed Habanero chilies will begin to ripen from around day 100 on. However, with Habaneros, you determine when it’s time to pick them. Different colours indicate different stages of maturity; so, depending on whether you want them fresh and crunchy or soft and spicy, you can harvest at different times.

Moreover, depending on which colour Habanero chili you are growing, its ripe colouration will differ.

A Word of Warning

Whenever handling chilies and seeds, you’re best off wearing gloves to avoid pepper burn. And be careful not to touch your eyes; it can hurt!
