Product Overview

Capsicum chinense

This is a hot oneùtry it if you dare! Adds not only fire but a distinctive citrus flavor. Try a thin slice shaken in a margarita!

Prized by chile aficionados not only for its intense heat, but its distinct fruitiness, the habanero is used in sensational salsas (see recipe inside), and will turn a bland barbeque into a fiery feast! Habaneros are said to be 100 times hotter than jalapeños (but after the first 100,000 Scoville heat units, who's counting?) 100,000-350,000 Scoville heat units (extremely hot).

Variety Info

2 ½" long, 1" wide, green turning to orange-red when mature. Habaneros are one of the hottest peppers in the world at 100,000–350,000 Scoville heat units.

Sowing Inside

Transplant seedlings outside 2 to 4 weeks after your average last frost date, and when daytime temperatures are at least 70°F, and nighttime temperatures are at least 55°F. Mild Climates: May be sown in late summer for fall/winter crop.
