Ají Habañero


Not a habanero or even from the Chinense family. This variety is from the Baccatum family. The variety sets light green/ creamy-yellow pods turning bright orange when fully ripe. When pods are not ripe, they tend to have mild/spicy taste, but when they turn bright orange, they lose the heat and become very sweet and fruity. A great pepper for fresh eating and making heatless chili powder or crushed flakes.
