Habañero means 'from Havana'. Habañero and its kin long ago migrated from the Caribbean Islands to Central America. A close relative of the Jamaican Scotch Bonnet. To complement its searing heat, Habañero has a delicious, pungent, smoky quality unlike any other pepper – the heat does not drown out these flavors. Many people, like me, find its flavor and aroma irresistible in sauces and salsas. I use it in my signature hot sauce. Takes a while to mature in Maine, but is bountiful once it does. 85 days. Open-pollinated.
