Description

Capsicum chinense

A red fruited habanero that has a gentle heat, and produces copious yields.

The deeply-grooved fruit of Trinity are quite erratic in shape and size, but can be as large as 30 x 65mm. They turn from lime green to red as they ripen and, as with other habaneros, are distinguished by a likable fruity aroma that adds a distinctive flavour to salsas and chilli sauces. They are not, however, overly hot, and are more manageable in the kitchen than other habaneros.

The medium-sized, spreading plants are absolutely laden with fruit, and need support to stay upright.

Heat level: approx 40,000 SHU (hot, but at the low end of the hot category)
