Among the most popular chillies, Habanero Red is characterised by a high, pungent spiciness and a pleasantly fruity flavour. It is the ideal variety if you want to impress your guests with South American-style recipes based on chillies grown in your own garden.
Organic Habanero Chocolate Pepper
The organic Habanero Red pepper is a variety of Capiscum chinense, which is very popular in Mexico and South America in general. With a Scoville value of 350,000 SHU, it is a super-hot cultivar, but it is also aromatic and sweet, so it enhances the flavour of dishes rather than covering it up. Organic Habanero Red pepper fruits have a slightly curved bell shape and a bright red hue. This is the best known and most widely used type of Habanero, but different colours and flavours also exist.
How can I grow it?
Like other chilli plants, the Habanero Red is also afraid of the cold. For this reason, we recommend you to start sowing between March and May, when temperatures are above 15°; otherwise, with a heated seedbed or grow-box you can bring this phase forward to the winter months. After leaving the seeds to soak for about 24 hours, place them in a container on absorbent paper, close and puncture the lid to create good – but not excessive – humidity. The first shoots may take from a few days to more than two weeks to sprout.
Once they have sprouted, transplant them into the soil and water them little and often to ensure constant watering without creating stagnation. Expose the plant to sunlight and make sure that the room temperature always remains around 20°/25°.
The organic Habanero Red pepper requires a little more patience. To harvest them, wait about 4 months; when the fruits come off the plant easily, they will be ready to colour and flavour your dishes.
How can I eat it?
The organic Habanero Red pepper is fruity and sweet. It is often combined with tropical fruits such as mango or pineapple to create an intense and pleasant contrast of flavours. As it is a rather meaty variety, you can also use it in the preparation of sauces and seasonings.
We recommend wearing gloves when handling the chillies to avoid skin irritation.
Store the seeds in a cool, ventilated place with a temperature between 8° and 20° C, protected from weather, changes in humidity and sunlight.
