Hangjiao 8 Total Eclipse

‘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 can increase 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 8 Total Eclipse grows to about 60-70 cm in a pot. The chilli peppers are huge, between 20-25 cm long and 4 cm wide. Some are curly, others  straight or bend and some of the most cool looking chillies we have seen.
