The Orange Habanero is said to originate from the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico.
The plant grows well in a pot to about one meter in height and is a very bushy variety. First the pods start off a light green and end up orange, when they are fully mature.
The bright orange fruits are anywhere from 20 to 30 times hotter than jalapeno's. Their bright colour and intense fiery heat are the classic ingredients in the Caribbean and South American barbecue meat marinades and pastes. This chilli is would also be a great choice for a hot sauce or as a spicy chilli powder.
Pods size: 5 cm long and 3 cm wide.
Flavour: Very crispy with a really nice sweet taste with orange undertones
Heat Level: Hot
