A Scotch Bonnet–type infamous for its extreme heat, fiery Habanero registers a blistering 200,000–325,000 Scoville units, depending on how hot the growing season, 30–80 times as hot as Early Jalapeño! Each 1' plant will set 10–20 pendulous fruits that turn from dark green to tangerine as they mature. Fruits are somewhat wrinkled from stem to tip. Their distinctive flavor makes them a key ingredient in West Indian jerk sauces. We recommend greenhouse culture for the northern third of our sales area where frequent nighttime temperatures below 70° make outdoor production iffy.

Days to Maturity: 100
