Red Habanero

(30 Seeds)

The Habanero Pepper is a type of chili pepper that is commonly seen around the world and has become a staple ingredient of cuisine for its heat and flavor. Originating from the Amazon, the habanero spread to Mexico where it proliferated throughout the world. At one point, the habanero held the record for the hottest pepper in the world at a whopping 100,000-350,000 SHU (Scoville Heat Units) which makes it on average 76 times hotter than your average jalapeño.

Unripe habaneros start out green and primarily turn orange or red as they mature. The habanero plant, being a perennial flowing plant, is capable of growing fruits for years throughout their lifespans if they are properly cared for. In tropical areas such as Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, which is the largest producer of habanero peppers in the world, the plants produce peppers year round. In other places, such as the northern United States, they die each winter and have to be replaced during springtime. Farmers have tried to selectively breed the plants. This has resulted in forms such as Black Habanero and the Caribbean Red.

The habanero plant is not without predators or flaws. They are susceptible to various diseases and pests that can weaken or destroy their leaves and peppers. Insects such as the Greenhouse Aphid can infest plants, consuming sap and spreading diseases. Fruit rots such as Black Mold and Anthracnose are mainly caused by bacteria or fungi which lead to the destruction of crops.

The world famous habanero pepper is an iconic chili pepper that symbolizes spice and flavor around the world. Habanero peppers are used in many types of spicy foods from sauces to dishes and toppings; they can be an essential part of a meal or a mere decoration.
