Originated from Africa, these heirloom seeds can grow extremely well in hot weather areas. The plant will grow to about 40 inches in a pot and will grow bigger if planted in the ground. Also, the pods will grow to 2-3 inches long. Unlike habaneros, this heat won't creep up on you slowly. Instead, the burn is felt immediately. One can expect to feel the sting of the Fatali pepper in the first bite, feeling the burn after 10 seconds once it hits your throat and up the nose. The fruit has a citrus flavor that deliciously complements any fish, chicken, or veal dish. Hang on for life when you take the first bite!
WARNING: Plants adjust to small, gradual changes in their environment better than sudden shifts, which is what the hardening off process is all about. Just as you get burned when you bare your untanned skin to the sun, leaves of plants started indoors will develop pale, sunburned patches if they are suddenly exposed to too much sun. The story has a happier ending when you introduce seedlings to bright light and sheltered breezes gradually, over a period of one to three weeks.
