Growing and harvesting

Cultivation of a rawit chillies 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 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 in the open. The plant grows up as a long stem with short sideshoots on which the chillies grow. They are harvested by hand after approximately 3 months. Green rawit chili must be completely green in colour, at least 3 cm tall and sturdy. Red rawit chili must be a rich orange/red in colour, at least 3 cm tall and sturdy. In addition, both variants must have a shiny skin. Only if they possess these properties are they harvested. The colour of the chili is no indication of the spiciness, although the red chillies may be hotter than the green ones. 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.
