The world’s first truly heatless habanero! Bred by well-known organic plant breeder Michael Mazourek, Habanada is the product of natural breeding techniques.
These exceptional snacking peppers have all of the fruity and floral notes of the habanero without any spice (even the seeds are sweet and add to the flavor). This 2-3 inch tangerine fruit stole the show at the 2014 Culinary Breeding Network Variety Showcase, where the fruit was made into a stunning sherbet.
100 days maturity – Best to grow in containers that can be moved to heat to extend season.
Suggestions: Peppers need a warm soil and night temperature to prosper. They will stunt under 10C. Location should be sheltered from the wind and soil should be kept reasonably moist. Be sure to harden off the seedlings to reduce transplant stress. Harvest fruit early and often. The more you pick the more they will produce. Do not pull off fruit, rather cut from stems.
Pot size: Minimum 12″ per plant or plant in ground 12″ away from next plant.
