Tropical heat seeds
C hilli Pepper ‘Tropical Heat’ is a hot mix of Caribbean Habenero red and orange seeds, plus seeds of the yellow and red Scotch Bonnets. These very hot fruits ripen from green to red and have a fiery pungency at maturity. Ideal for growing in the greenhouse or on a sunny patio outside – according to seeds merchants. But we take issue with that last statement because growing these plants outside successfully depends entirely on where you live.
Where we are in Derbyshire and north of here growing chillies outside is a no no. Or to qualify that – Yes we can grow these outside on the patio but here in the Midlands and further north they will only produce a fraction of the fruits that inside grown plants produce. If in doubt don’t go to the trouble of cultivating these hot little fruits to have them wither outside due to cold winds – put them in your greenhouse, conservatory or on a sunny windowsill instead.
Sow: March to early April
Harvest: August to October
Flavour Guide: Fiery to atomic
Sowing Instructions: Sow the seeds thinly on the surface of a good, free draining compost and cover with a fine sprinkling if compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator at 18-20C (64-68F) until germination, which usually takes 7-14 days. Make sure they have plenty of light, as this helps germination.

What do we know about the unknown/legendary Tropical Heat?
Tropical Heat, also known as “Tropic Heat,” is an evenly balanced hybrid strain (50% indica/50% sativa) created through crossing the classic OG Kush Breath X Purple Punch strains. If you’re looking for a giddy and giggly high that will have your spirits flying for hours on end, you’ve found it. Tropical Heat brings on all of this and more wrapped up into one deliciously long-lasting toke. The high comes on fast and hard with a rush of cerebral effects, filling you with a sense of happy energy and creativity that’s filled with motivation. You’ll feel more sociable and outgoing, easily carrying on conversations with those around you. With these super happy effects and its high 21-24% average THC level, Tropical Heat is often said to be perfect for treating those suffering from conditions such as depression, mood swings, chronic stress, appetite loss or nausea and chronic fatigue. This bud has a sour tropical flavor with hints of ripe mango and sweet fruity cherries throughout. The aroma follows the same profile, although with hints of earthiness to the sour tropical overtone, too. Tropical Heat buds have fluffy grape-shaped dark olive green nugs with purple undertones, dark furry amber hairs and a coating of frosty matching crystal trichomes.

Chilli Pepper ‘Tropical Heat’ is a hot mix of Caribbean ‘Habenero’ red and orange, plus yellow and red ‘Scotch Bonnets’. These very hot fruits ripen from green to red and have a fiery pungency at maturity. Ideal for growing in the greenhouse or on a sunny patio outside. Height: 50cm (20″). Spread: 40cm (16″).
1 packet (15 chilli pepper seeds) (23741)
Sow Chilli Pepper seeds on the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed sowing mix and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place seed trays in a propagator at a temperature of 18-25C (64-77F) until after germination, which takes 7-10 days. Do not exclude light as this helps germination.
When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into individual 7.5cm (3″) pots of compost and grow on in cooler conditions. When plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, transplant them into grow bags and containers, or plant them in well prepared beds of fertile, moist, well drained soil. Chili peppers may be grown undercover in a greenhouse or polytunnel, or grown outdoors in a sheltered position in full sun. When growing chilli peppers outdoors, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days prior to transplanting them. Space pepper plants at a distance of 50cm (20″) apart.
Water chilli pepper plants regularly throughout the growing season and feed weekly with a high potash tomato fertiliser once the first fruits have set. Taller varieties of chilli peppers may require staking. Provide a thick mulch of organic matter around the base of the plants to help conserve moisture and reduce weed growth. In greenhouses, maintain high humidity by damping down paths daily. Harvest chillies singly by cutting them from the plant with secateurs or pull the entire plant when full of red peppers, and hang upside down in the kitchen for use all year round. Chilli peppers grown outdoors must be harvested before the first frosts.
