Chilli Seeds from Sow Seeds Ltd
Brain Strain 7 Pod Chilli Pepper is regarded as one of the hottest chillies in the world, and chilli officianados think it may be hotter then Trinidad Scorpion 'Butch T' which has a heat level of 1,400,000 SHU but it's rating is yet to be proved.
The knarled red bulbous chilli pods have the characteristic knobbly skin associated with its 7 Pod parentage but with brain like ridges & channels hence it's name. It grows to about 1m tall and produces an excellent crop of scorchingly hot chillies. As with most Superhot varieties seeds can be quite difficult to germinate so patience is needed. It may take up to 40 days or more and care is needed to ensure the seed receives the right amount of water to aid germination. If overwatered the seed will rot before germination occurs and too little water means the seed won't germinate either.
The seeds should be sown in either a heated propagator or a heated greenhouse and kept at a constant high temperature. In order to produce fruit successfully, the seed should be sown early in the season and the plants must be kept at a constant high temperature and watered as required. A little extra help with pollination by hand-pollinating is beneficial. It is not uncommon for the first flowers to drop before setting chillies but others should follow. Not an easy chilli to grow but great for the dedicated chilli enthusiast!
A real humdinger that needs care, caution and a touch of chilli madness to grow!!
