Posted on Jan 31, 2023

What is Habanero?

Habanero is a very hot pepper that is green when unripe and red or orange when ripe. This pepper is most often found in sauces.

The Habanero pepper is a product of a perennial flowering plant that produces a floral aroma in the pepper. The pepper ranges from 1-3 inches in size and there are multiple habanero pepper breeds with varying heats, colors, and flavor profiles.
