Habanero is another variety of hot pepper we've always grown and our garden usually includes a decent amount of reds and oranges. Habanero is always very productive and, unless you're making hot sauce, 1 or two plants are all you'll really need. All of our Habanero are grown in small pots and they do great. Habs have a unique flavor that sets them apart from other hots and makes them great for cooking. And they really pack a punch! Don't pass them up. Every garden should have a splash of color this hot!
From our supplier:
90 days to maturity. Open-pollinated. A Scotch Bonnet–type infamous for its extreme heat, fiery Habanero registers a blistering 200,000–325,000 Scoville units, depending on how hot the growing season, 30–80 times as hot as Early Jalapeño! Each 1½' plant will set 10–20 pendulous fruits that turn from dark green to red as they mature. Fruits are somewhat wrinkled from stem to tip. Their distinctive flavor makes them a key ingredient in West Indian jerk sauce. We recommend greenhouse culture for the northern third of our sales area where frequent nighttime temperatures below 70° make outdoor production iffy.
Sow seeds indoors, 1/4" deep, in a warm location. 14-28 days to germinate. Transplant to fertile soil in containers or hedge 20" apart, at least 3' between rows, in areas with full sun in the spring.
Shipping and Combined Shipping
NYCfigs ships on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
We never 'pass the savings' of expensive shipping charges to the customer and always ship as economically as possible. Sometimes this becomes a juggling act between cost-of-goods vs. cost-of-container vs. shipment size vs. shipping cost vs. margins. With combined shipping, it's all in the packing and we'll always find the most inexpensive shipping method available. But there are times when it's impossible to ship economically and we'll always let you know before paying. The shipping for all items sold by NYCfigs will combine automatically with all other items purchased from NYCfigs. Items that ship free can't be discounted. In the rare instance of excess shipping charges, NYCfigs will refund after the invoice is paid. This ensures your items are received in a timely manner.
