The name means ‘from Havana,’ although they really are from other parts of Cuba and the Yucatan. A Scotch Bonnet–type, Habanero is one of the most fiery peppers, registering a blistering 200,000–325,000 Scoville units, depending on how hot the growing season, from 30–80 times as hot as Early Jalapeño. Each 1-1/2′ plant will set 10–20 pendulous fruits that turn from dark green to tangerine as they mature. Fruits are somewhat wrinkled from stem to tip.
