So beautiful! The chocolate-brown, lantern shaped fruit are about 2” long, and so ornamental! But don’t let the color fool you; these are not candy, but rather flaming-hot fruit that carry a massive 300,000 Scoville units of heat! Hot pepper enthusiasts love the heat and flavor that these chocolate fruits are packed with, but be careful and use in moderation.

What are the pros? Fantastic unique flavor

What are the cons? Needs lots of water.

Review:

Very difficult to get to germinate. One year I started in February and got a lot of plants, but this year I had to wait until March, and most seeds did not germinate or develop. I did get one very good plant. I put mine outdoors in April or when the leave are large enough, and once it has roots established it will live for at least a couple of years outdoors without bringing it back inside. I get the most chilies from November through January. It's definitely worth the effort because of the flavor, but the seeds are difficult, unless you have a greenhouse, and I do not. If I had better soil, I would plant mine in the ground, and then who knows how big they would get. As it is I put them in the largest pots I have, and they still get rootbound. I make a fantastic hot sauce with these that people want to buy from me, but I can never make enough for the demand.

Review:

This is a fantastic specimen for bonzai and or growing into a small pepper tree. Dont put these into the ground in june expecting a bumper crop two months later: truly hot peppers don't grow like that. Instead, grow it in a 1 gallon black plastic pot with a sandy loam and keep the soil wet for maximum growth (peppers have drought tolerance but the pot's raised structure creates enough drainage and they are NOT prone to root rot). They will fruit all winter for you after they reach maturity by fall or after a few months of veg growth. The fruit are absolutely beautiful and the high capsaicin is emminently useful. Dont do this as an annual please, Americans need to learn the true biology of what these plants are: perennial tropical trees, NOT annual temperate garden plants. The stem will become woody like the maple trees in your yard. Do it and don't look back. Great luck!

What are the pros? Easy to grow and maintain

What are the cons? Late-maturing

Review:

Planted early Spring in seed starters and transferred to a raised bed in mid-May. Germinated at a good rate and grew easily enough. Loves direct sun and consistent watering in loose, loamy, well-drained soil. Those that were transfered to the bed thrived and wequired very little maintenance though I did cage them as they grew about 4-4 1/2' tall. Did not develop much fruit through summer with a LOT in early-mid fall. The fall fruits were slow to fully mature (stayed green a long time, likely due to lack of summer sun by the time they arrived. I ended up picking the last bunch of them green and letting them finish turning indoors. The habaneros themselves are pretty consistent with regular habaneros, just amplified a bit– earthy, fruity, and with a good bit of heat.

What are the pros? Actually easy to grow.

Review:

Planted one way too late last summer to get any peppers but allowed in to stay in the ground over the winter rather than throw it away, figured "what the heck?". And whadaya know? Tough little hombre held on and I now have huge plant with tons of beautiful brown smokin' hot peppers. Yowza!

What are the pros? Great flavor, lots of heat

What are the cons? None

Review:

These are hotter than a typical habanero-quite a bit so. They do still retain that great habanero flavor. The flesh also seems to be a little bit thinner. Overall, my plants grew well and were very productive. Most of my peppers are grown in pots on my driveway- these were no exception. I grew these last year along with the red version and the traditional orange (aka Chichen Itza/Burning Bush.) I saved some seeds and they have germinated so I am curious to see what I get (all three habanero varieties were grown next to each other-as well as a couple sweet peppers, so who knows!)
