Orange Habanero is a combination of beauty and the beast: it is brutishly hot while being seductively fruity. The fruit are are thin-fleshed, 30mm wide and 50mm long and change from green to a stunning salmon orange as they ripen. The medium-sized plants are incredibly productive, and have a tidy growth habit making them ideal for growing in pots or growbags.
Orange Habanero lends a distinctive flavour to any dish to which it is added, and it is the chilli of choice for making an over-the-top sweet chilli sauce.
