4817 Capsicum sp. Habanero Pepper - seeds
Habanero Pepper is a variety of chili pepper. Unripe habaneros are green, and they color as they mature. Common colors are orange and red. Habanero chilis are intensely hot, rated 100,000-350,000 on the Scoville scale.
Habaneros thrive in hot weather. As with all peppers, the habanero does well in an area with good morning sun and in soil with a pH level around 5 to 6 (slightly acidic). The habanero should be watered only when dry. Overly moist soil and roots will produce bitter-tasting peppers. The habanero is a perennial flowering plant, meaning that with proper care and growing conditions, it can produce flowers (and thus fruit) for many years. Habanero bushes are good candidates for a container garden. In temperate climates, though, it is treated as an annual, dying each winter and being replaced the next spring. In tropical and subtropical regions, the habanero, like other chiles, will produce year round. As long as conditions are favorable, the plant will set fruit continuously.
Broadcast seeds on the surface of soil, barely cover. Provide bright light, keep moist and warm.
