These seeds sprouted after about 5 days with a heat mat set to 90 degrees. I got 90% germination with the 10 seeds I received. I ordered these with 3 other types of pepper seeds and I was sent free trinidad scorpion scorpion seeds!
Out of 98 pots with 18 varieties these were the only ones with zero germination. Looked forward to trying them too.
None germinated. All my other hot peppers germinated, even my reapers and ghost peppers, and they’re difficult. Planted 1/4” deep, kept soil moist, not dry, wet, damp, or soggy. Sent a support email in about a week ago. No response. Perhaps it wasn’t meant to be.
These came free along with Scorpion seeds with my Reaper and Bolivian Rainbow order. That in itself deserves 5 stars. Nearly 100% germination. You want production and size? Look no further. The heat is there along with that strong Habanero flavor I love. Dried for flakes on anything, hot sauce on its own or added to other peppers for enhanced flavor. Its awesome. My first ripe pepper was sliced up and put on a burger which made my summer. I highly recommend this variety and PepperJoes.
Seeds started to sprout in less than 10 days. Organic grass compost adds lots of leaves which promotes photosynthesis. However adding fertilizers rich in potassium, slightly increases the number of pods and the heat in each pod. Technically speaking, the heat could be exceeding 350,000 SHU's when properly nourished.
Suitable for salads, soups and curries. Not at all mild in taste, bit tangy but spicy, suitable for moderate to high heat daily consumption.
