200,000-300,000 SHU - EXTREMELY HOT! "HOT" new look for the Habanero - Elongated, glossy bright red! 30-36"H plant produces high yields of 3-4"L glossy bright red hot peppers. Peppers are lantern shaped, longer and more slender than a typical Habanero. Ready to eat when they are still green (70 days) but are more succulent and nutritious if allowed to ripen to red (90 days). Early maturity variety that is good for cooler climes.
Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
This variety has a history of being passed down within a family or community, similar to the generational sharing of certain items like jewelry or furniture.
