Pepper, Habanero Red



Our hottest of all peppers, but much more palatable than the dangerously hot “bout jolokia” ghost chili pepper. Habanero means “from Havana”. Habanero and its kin long ago migrated from the Caribbean Islands to Central America where they remain extremely popular today. A close relative of the Jamaican Scotch Bonnet. To complement its searing heat, Habanero has a delicious, pungent, smoky quality unlike any other pepper; many people find its flavor and aroma irresistible in sauces and salsas.
