Habanero Orange Pepper is one of the hottest of the habanero's and one of the hottest peppers in the world with a SHU's rating of 100,000 to 350,000 units. This pepper is a very aromatic, flavourful, extremely pungent hot pepper used in Caribbean curries and is the key ingredient in Jamaican jerk sauces. It is believed to have originated in the Yucatan and was later grown in Trinidad and the West Indies. It is slow germinating and prefers a dry, warm growing season. Peppers average 2 x 1 ¼ inch fruits that ripen from dark green to a salmon orange. 75 days to green, 100 days orange ripe peppers.

This pepper is considered especially nice for decorative purposes as well, though you will want to harvest it eventually for the fruity flavour as a fine addition to extra spicy salsas and marinades and for some very hot sauces.

Growing Hot Peppers is very similar to growing Sweet Peppers and Tomatoes. For best
results it is advised to grow the crop indoors with heat. This means that crops can be
grown all year round with the correct temperatures.

Sowing & Growing
Sow the seed into compost either into a seed tray or into modules with a temperature
between 20-24oC and cover with a light layer of compost. Germination typically takes 14-
21 days. Cover the compost with clear plastic film which helps raise the temperature
aiding germination.
Once seedlings emerge they do not require quite as much heat, temperatures can be
reduced to 18oC by day and no lower than 16oC at night.

It is best to re-pot in stages before their final pot size. Once in final pot size plants may
need staking for support. Water regularly but be careful not to over water, surface of
compost can be allowed to dry out slightly between watering

Harvesting 90 days approx.
Hot peppers can be harvested from green or once ripened into yellow, orange or red. A
Hot Pepper?s heat usually intensifies with maturity. Once ripe fruits can remain on plant in
good condition until temperatures begin to drop.

Suitable for the vegetable garden, allotments and containers.

Be prepared to water well and supplement feed with high-potash feed during season. Regular feeding is recommended.
