Habanero Chilli 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.
