Regular price $5.00 Sale

The Habenero is the hottest open-pollinated pepper available - about 40X hotter than the Jalapeno! The peppers are about 1" x 2" and green in color, turning to orange or red at maturity. These are primarily used for a dry pepper powder, an oil extract, or in hot sauces. These peppers take 95 days to ripen and pack about 200,000 Scoville Heat Units.

Though this greatest quantities of Habanero peppers are now grown in the Yucatan in Mexico, they once played an important part in the industry of "La Habana," or Havana, from which they receive their name. Habanero peppers spread so far so quickly that they also became called Chinese peppers, since some believed that was their place of origin. Habanero peppers are the hottest open pollinated pepper available.
