Red Habanero Pepper

If your cuisine leans toward atomic, this is one heirloom you’ll love growing! The Caribbean Red Habanero Pepper (Capsicum chinense) has a reputation for exceptionally easy care, fantastic production, and a kick that’s definitely hotter than orange or cayenne types. In 80-100 days, you’ll have 3-in. fruits on 2-ft. plants for a tidy and fiery planting. Learn How to Grow Peppers here.

Each packet contains approximately 25 seeds.

Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Crops require full sun, fast draining soil and regular water. Peppers grow best when temperatures are warm and need substantial heat to set fruit. Start indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost or, depending on your climate zone, sow directly in the garden after the soil has warmed. Allow 1-1/2 feet between plants in all directions; provide support for varieties that grow over one foot tall.

Harvest fruits early and often — the more you pick the more they will produce. Always cut — do NOT pull — fruits from plants. Most varieties can be eaten when green or under-ripe, however, the flavor improves as plants mature.
