Dried Orange Habanero Peppers - Lucifer's House of Heat
The habanero chile (Capsicum chinense) is one of the most intensely hot, spicy chile peppers that you will come across. The species was misnamed in 1776 by a Dutch physician who was collecting plants throughout the Caribbean for Emperor Francis I. The species was incorrectly identified as "chinense" as he believed this chile had originated in China. The name stuck and this Chinese hot pepper is not from China but originated from the Caribbean and South America.

Habaneros ripen into one of a variety of colors including red, orange, pink, white or chocolate. The typical size is 1” -2 ½” and 1”-2” in diameter.

Habaneros are some of the hottest chile peppers and rate around 200,000 - 300,000 Scoville Units. While these pack a nice burn that heat seekers crave they also have a bit of a fruity taste to them. The flavour profile of the habanero has the noticeable tropical fruit flavors of coconut and papaya, with berry undertones, and an acidic and intense, fiery heat.
