The Caribbean Red Habanero pepper is a rare color variation of the traditional Orange Habanero pepper. Although the shapes are the same – all Habanero varieties are lantern-like and one to two inches long, Caribbean Red Habanero peppers are much spicier than Orange Habanero peppers. The heat level of the Caribbean Red Habanero is extremely hot and the flavor is described as fruity and slightly smoky. Many spicy salsas and hot sauces list the Caribbean Red Habanero as an ingredient because of its delicious combination of flavor and heat. The peppers mature from green to a rich red color, and increase in heat the more they ripen. In 1999, the Habanero was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's hottest pepper, but it has since been displaced by a number of other peppers. The Red Caribbean Habanero pepper ranges from 300,000 to 445,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU).

In recent years, Habaneros are becoming more and more mainstream as they are often thought of as the go-to pepper for those looking to spice up a meal. The recent surge in spicy fast food items, spicy chips, and spicy craft beers often list the Habanero pepper as a main ingredient. The Habanero pepper has several different color strains, including the Peach HabaneroWhite HabaneroRed Savina HabaneroFireball Habanero, and Orange Habanero. The Habanero pepper was the first pepper ever grown at Tyler Farms.

    We just finished our 3rd batch of hot sauce using peppers we grew from your seeds and wanted to let you know how much we appreciate your high quality seeds. Not only do we always get great germination rates, but we can trust that the peppers will actually be the correct variety that you advertise them as. Thanks as always
