Peppers > Pepper Habanero Yellow


Renowned as one of the hottest chilies in the world, the yellow habaņero chile pepper is characteristically lantern-shaped. Varying from green and yellow to red and reddish-purple, this hot little pepper is about one to two-and-one-half inches long and one to two inches in diameter. Possessing an intensity that is sometimes soars beyond the heat-measuring chart, the habaņero, pronounced hah-bah-NYAIR-oh, is at least 50 times hotter than the jalapeņo. So hot, in fact, that special care should be taken when handling this variety. When ripe, they have a distinctively sweet, tropical fruity flavor and an apricot aroma. Dried habaņero chilies offer only heat as its distinguished flavor in its fresh state is gone after drying. Scoville units: 10 (100,000-300,000)
