Interesting Facts


White Habaneros are the earliest fruiting of the chinese varieties. They produce a plethora of tiny little creamy-coloured pods that are seriously hot.

Jamaican Hot is an increasingly popular plant, grown for its beautiful large, crumpled pods that are pretty hot with a distinctive fruity flavour with a tinge of apricot. It's island of origin is obviously Jamaica but unusually for plants of this heat, it is actually an Annuum species planet, not chinense, making it more suitable for outdoor growth than its counterparts.

Paper Lanterns are the prettiest of Habaneros. Named for the likeness of the pods to the chinese floating lanterns in shape and luminescence as the bright pods have a glow about them. Don’t be fooled by their beauty, these are red hot as well. At 400,000 Scoville Units, they’re one of the hottest Habs around.

Chocolates are one of the most popular Habaneros with a blistering sharp heat and a distinctive smoky flavour. The plants are named after the gorgeous deep brown pods they produce.

potting on chilli plants

Potting on Your Chilli Plants

Your chilli plants will arrive ready to be transplanted into their final pots. Most chillies are best suited to a 12-15 litre pot but be a bit flexible here for giants or dwarf varieties. Use a free draining compost mix to fill the pot, make a hole and pop in the plant. If you have an ordinary compost, mix with a little grit or sand. Firm down and give a good watering.

growing on chilli plants

By this stage an unheated greenhouse should suffice. This is obviously dependent on the weather. Chillies don’t like the cold and shouldn’t be left unprotected if the temperature is going to go down below 10oC. If you are quick off the mark and have your chillies arriving in March, keep indoors or in a heated greenhouse until the risk of frost has passed.

Chilli plants do not like sitting in wet soil, so keep it moist but not over-wet. Feed with a seaweed feed or dedicated chilli feed at the suggested rate. Keep an eye out for any pests or problems. These are best dealt with early on. Prevention is obviously better than cure, so keep plants well spaced and well ventilated. Remove any dead leaves or rotting plant material.

In the summer months, hardier chillies can be placed outside in a sheltered spot or on a warm patio. Acclimatize them slowly, bringing them in at night for the first week or whenever the temperature threatens to drop. Chinense varieties prefer the shelter of a greenhouse and will not flourish outside. Use a cane to support the plants as they grow if necessary.

encouraging fruit

Your chilli plants will produce chillies on each of their sidestems so the more sidestems you have, the more fruit your plant will produce. You can encourage sidestems by placing plants temporarily onto their side causing them to try to grow upright by throwing out a number of sidestems.

Chillies can be pollinated by bees but failing that, they are also self-pollinating, so a gentle shake of flowers will help ensure that they set. Once your chillies start to flower, switch to a high potassium feed such as a tomato feed.

If you want a bumper crop of pods, feed at the suggested rate. However if you want to get really hot chillies, you need to stress your plants. Feed at half the suggested rate and keep letting your plants dry out, watering them only small amounts as they start to wilt. This will get you a smaller crop of superhot pods.

World of Chillies wishes you success with your chilli plants and hopes that you will enjoy growing and consuming them as much as we do!
