Quality PURPLE BHUT JOLOKIA / Naga Jolokia Ghost Chilli

10 x Purple Bhut Jolokia Chilli Seeds High Quality, Fast Germinating Seeds - Guaranteed. This Purple variety is a variation of the Red Bhut Jolokia. These will actually ripen from a purple/aubergine shade to bright red if left on the plant long enough. They tend not to be as hot as the other Bhut Jolokia peppers and their shape is also slightly different. There is some debate as to whether this is a true Bhut variety at all, but nevertheless these are still a very attractive and worthwhile pepper. The seeds are relatively easy to germinate and are best sown in a seed tray in late January or early February, but can be sown later if the growing season is favourable. A heated propagator placed on a sunny windowsill is ideal. Allow the seedlings to establish themselves well before potting on into warm soil, preferably in a warm conservatory or greenhouse. Feeding the seedlings a nutrients weekly will aid their growth. Keep the plants moist but not too wet. Later on, spraying the plants with warm water will encourage flowering. Once flowering, dabbing the flowering heads with a paintbrush will help pollinate them. The plants will require a long growing season and should produce their extremely hot fruits into the autumn. Leaving a few of the best fruits on the plant and letting turn to the deep red will increase the mouth-burning heat to ridiculous levels!
