Grow Heirloom Peppers - Plant Habanero Mix Pepper Seeds

Capsicum habanero is a perennial pepper growing to 60-90 cm high and means from Havana. Technically, their species name is Capsicum Chinense Jacquin. It is an extremely hot pepper believed to originally have been taken to the Yucatan Peninsula from Cuba. They are also grown to a lesser extent in Belize, Costa Rica, Texas, and California. They can live many years in pots. It is in leaf all year, in flower in Spring and Summer, and followed by the fruits.

Their average size is 1 to 2 1/2 inches long, 1 to 2 inches in diameter. The fruit is pear-shaped, tapered, and twisted, ripens from green to orange and is very aromatic. In tropical and subtropical regions, the Habanero, like other chiles, will produce year-round. Fruits mature in 95-100 days. The habanero is the most intensely spicy chile pepper of the Capsicum genus. Extremely Hot 100K-300K (Scoville Units), 100 times hotter than Jalapeno.

Hardiness zones 9 -11, (-5°C/25°F, 4°C/40°F) in Winter. Habaneros thrive in hot weather. As with all peppers, the Habanero does well in an area with good morning sun, in soil with an acidity level around 5-6 pH. The habanero should be watered only when dry. Overly moist soil and roots will produce bitter-tasting peppers. Peppers are not heavy feeders. Once flowering begins, fertilizer should be withheld; otherwise, flowers may drop without setting fruit.
