Habanero Yellow

Habanero Yellow

90-100 days. Renowned as one of the hottest chilies in the world, the yellow habañero pepper is characteristically lantern-shaped. Varying from green and yellow to red and reddish-purple, this hot little pepper is about 1” – 2 1/2” inches long and 1-2” inches in diameter. Possessing an intensity that is sometimes soars beyond the heat-measuring chart, the habañero is at least 50 times hotter than the jalapeño. So hot, in fact, that special care should be taken when handling this variety. When ripe, they have a distinctively sweet, tropical fruity flavor and an apricot aroma. Dried habañero chilies offer only heat as its distinguished flavor in its fresh state is gone after drying. Scoville units: 10 (100,000-300,000).
