Hot Chilli Pepper Habanero Red Carribean 

Originating from the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, the plants have a bushy and dense habit, growing to around 3 feet (90 cm) tall. The 1-1½” (2.5-4 cm) long by 1″ (2.5 cm) diameter fruits develop pale green gradually turning orange and then finally red.  As the colour intensifies the heat increases up to 450,000 Scoville with a delicate smoky plum flavour.  Capsicum chinense
