Caribbean Red Pepper

SKU: 9240

Seed for this habanero variety was found in the Caribbean, and grows a fiercely hot pepper that is hotter than the regular orange habanero. Dried samples of Caribbean Red measured 445,000 Scoville units whereas regular habanero tested at about 260,000 Scovilles. This pepper must be used carefully, but is wonderful for salsas, marinades, and making your own hot sauce. Bright red fruits are about 1½ inches deep and 1 inch wide and have flavor with fruity overtones. 110 days to red.
