Hangjiao 7 Super Nova

‘Chinese Space Chilli

杭椒辣椒 is a C. Annuum variety

In 1987 Jiang Xingcun, a scientist with the Chinese Academy of Sciences, discovered that sending vegetable seeds including chilli seeds into space exposing them to zero gravity increased the mutation rates by hundreds of times. This method resulted in increased size of the chillies and improved yield. The reason for the space programs were to find a solution on how to feed China’s  growing population. Since that time, China has sent more than 400 plant seed species to space.

Hangjiao 7 Super Nova is another awesome chilli variety, that has spend time in zero gravity. It grows to about 50-60 cm in a pot. The chillies are huge, up to 20 cm long and 1-1.5 cm wide. Some are straight, but most of them are twisted. Like the other space chillies it is very prolific.

Be one of the first to grow the space chillies.

Flavour: It tastes a like a fresh pea. Would be great in a salsa, a salad or just as a snack.

Heat level: Mild

10 space chilli seeds per pack.

    One of the earliest producers here in Oregon, USA. Very prolific, as advertised! We love the mild zing in our scrambled eggs for weekend brunches. Will definitely plant this one again next year!
