A combination of beauty and the beast, Orange Habanero is a deliciously flavoured and brutishly hot variety that’s graced by good looks. The thin-fleshed fruit measure about 3 x 5cm and change from green to a stunning salmon orange as they ripen.
The heat and flavour of Orange Habanero work synergistically to bring authenticity to both Caribbean and West African cooking. Fresh fruit can also be used to make a top notch tomato ketchup as well as a first rate sweet chilli sauce.
The bushy, medium-sized plants are highly productive and flourish in pots from 5 to 10 litres in size. The main stems need to be supported, otherwise they will flop over.
Heat level: extremely hot (approx 250,000 SHU)
