BB Habanero / CGN 24360 Seeds - Capsicum Chinense - Wild & Very Rare

Quantity: 10 Seeds
Species: Capsicum Chinense
Scovilles: 30,000-50,000


CGN 24360, aka BB Habañero is an amazing pepper variety. Its a wild variety that originates from south america. The plant grows to be about 2 feet tall, and 3 feet wide. Under ideal growing conditions, these plants can yield over 3000 pods in their first season! When planted early in the season, these peppers are one of the first varieties to ripen. The pods taste amazing fresh, but also make a great sauce, and can also be dried and ground into a powder. As well as being extremely productive and flavourful, the plants are among the most ornamental of capsicums. Its one of the few Chinense varieties that grow well in a cooler climate too.


All seeds are organic and open pollinated.

  • Growing Instructions

    It's best to start pepper seeds as early in the season as possible; we start them here on the farm in January. It's good to sow them in a sterile growing medium; most available seed starting soils should do the job nicely; we use sunshine mix (peat moss and perlite). The soil should be made moist, but not damp. Sow the seeds 1/4 inch below the soil surface. Store in a warm area until tiny sprouts emerge from the soil. A heat mat aids in this step, but is not necessary. Seeds can take between 2-8 weeks to germinate, but they can sometimes take less time too. Once germinated, and the first true leaf has formed, it's time to pot up to a larger container that contains a good quality potting soil. Transplant to their final location when the nighttime temperatures are consistently 8°C or higher. These peppers grow very well in pots or containers; I recommend 5 gallon pots of larger. Peppers do best when grown in full sun.
