Description

Habanero Pepper Seeds

[90-100 days] Extremely popular in the Caribbean and Central America, Habaneros have a pungent, smokey flavour accented by fruity, citrus notes. The blocky, wrinkled peppers grow up to 2 inches long and almost as wide. Colour-wise, the fruits start off dark green and then ripen out to a lovely salmon orange. But as mild as the colour looks, beware! They run a scorching 215,000 Scovilles and a little goes a long way.

Like all chilies, Habanero peppers are perennials and can live for years if cared for appropriately. They also grow well in containers, though can get a bit taller than their Jalapeño cousins.

A key ingredient in Jamaican jerk sauces.

Open-pollinated.

Common Questions

Why won't my Habanero Pepper seeds take to germinate? The most common reason for Habanero chillies not germinating is that they are not receiving enough warmth. Chilli seeds love warmth when germinating and usually fail to when the temperature is under 26°C.

How many peppers does a Habanero plant produce? Habanero plants grow to about 30 inches tall. If your plant is placed in a warm spot in your garden with little wind then you can harvest about 200 peppers per plant throughout the growing season.

What colour are Habanero peppers when mature? Habanero peppers begin growing green and then fully colour as the mature. A ripe Habanero pepper can be between 3-6cm long and red.
