Growing and harvesting

Cultivation of a naga jolokia starts at the plant grower's where the seeds are sown in containers. These stand for approximately 2 weeks under a grow light of 23-25 degrees. After 2 weeks the seedlings come up and are transplanted in rockwool blocks or pots. When the plants are about 40 cm, they are put in the greenhouse or grown in open fields. This depends on the season. The plants are grown on rockwool or in the open. The plant grows up as a long stem with short sideshoots on which the chilllies grow. They are harvested by hand after 12 weeks when they are orange/red in colour. Only when the fruit is a beautiful orange/red colour does the chili have the right level of spiciness. After harvesting, the chillies are graded by quality, size and colour and packed in a 2 kg box. The products are then transported to Nature's Pride.
