Habanero Chiles (Capsicum baccatum) are one of the hottest chiles. Behind the heat is a fruity flavor that makes these chiles a wonderful way to spark up a dish. It is round, oblong chile about 3/4" wide. Habanero means "havana-like", a reference to its possible origins. It's the only pepper grown in the Yucatan that has no Mayan name. Speculation suggests the Habanero originated in South America and made it's way into the Caribbean and Central America via Colombia. On the heat scale the Habanero is a 10. Use rubber gloves when handling the Habanero Pepper.  Scoville heat units 100,000 to 200,000.

    Too spicy

    Posted by Vanessa from California on 10th Nov 2011

    This chili was a little too spicy for me! Will stick with the milder ones from now on. Quality was good though.
