110+ days. Capsicum chinense. Open Pollinated, Plant produces good yields of 2" long by 1 ¾" wide wrinkled Habanero peppers. Peppers are extremely hot and turn from green to red when mature. The plant has green stems, green leaves, and creamy-yellow flowers. Komodo is particularly interesting because it has a delayed reaction that gives you a false sense of security, but then after about 10 seconds, the full hotness sensation hits you and your whole mouth is on fire. Be very, very careful handling this extremely hot pepper. Excellent for beef jerky, jerk sauces, pickling, and making salsa, hot sauce, and seasoning spice powder. This pepper was developed in 2015 by Salvatore Genovese. The pepper is a cross between a Bhut Jolokia and a Trinidad Scorpion. It is currently one of the Hottest Pepper in the World!

Hot Pepper Seed Planting Information:

Some hot pepper varieties come from tropical humid regions and some varieties come from dry desert regions. The temperature, moisture, and air circulation all play a role in growing plants from seeds. Too little heat, too much moisture, and lack of air circulation will cause poor results. Do not use jiffy peat pots, plugs, or potting soil as the soil becomes too dry or too wet, which can lead to disease and fungus. We have experienced disease and low germination when using these types of products. Use Miracle Gro Seed Starting Material for best germination results. Read the Hot Pepper Growing Tips and Planting Instructions for information on growing hot peppers from seeds. Please take time to watch the Hot Pepper Planting Instructions Movie . Plants can grow 1 to 7 ft tall.

 

Soil Requirements:

Requires fertile soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

Water well with soaker hoses during dry and hot spells.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Apply Miracle Gro every two weeks.

Harvest Tips:

Harvest hot peppers when they are fully mature using a garden scissor so you don't damage the plant. Pick peppers as they mature to encourage new buds to form.
