•American grown seeds
•Easy to grow

Among the hottest peppers anywhere, Habanero reaches up to 215,000 Scovilles of heat! These little peppers look harmless, but use them very sparingly, and remember to wear gloves when handling them to avoid transferring that heat to your eye! Blocky, wrinkled peppers measure about 1-2 inches long and slightly less wide, maturing from silvery-green to bright orange on the plant.

Growing Instructions:
Sow indoors at 75-80°F. A plant heating mat does wonders to help this. Peppers germinate and grow at a much slower rate at lower temperatures. Seeds can also be sown outdoors when the soil remains above 65°F in early summer. Indoors and out, sow at a depth of 4 times the size of the seeds and expect germination in 10-21 days and will generally fruit in 50-80 days after sowing. Transplant when there are at least two sets of true leaves. Plant out 2-3 weeks after the last frost. Space seedlings 18-24 inches apart in rows 30-36 inches apart.
