This is the classic red habanero, one of the most common hot peppers on earth. Red habanero peppers typically measure abut 100,000 to 300,000 on the Scoville heat scale. Red habanero peppers combine this mouth-scorching heat with notes of sweetness that pair perfectly with other sweet ingredients like BBQ sauce and mango. Make your own hot sauces or step up your Chili recipe with freshly-grown red habaneros from your garden, or dry them for use throughout the year. Red habanero plants typically grow to about 24 inches in height and will mature in approximately 100 days.
Warning: Direct consumption of these peppers can be dangerous. Even handling the seeds can cause irritation.
