The Peruvian White Habanero pepper is a rare variety of the Habanero family that is very hot. The small plant produces hot peppers that are smaller than traditional Orange Habanero peppers and have a creamy-white colored skin, making them a popular choice for ornamental pepper growers. They're similar to the White Jellybean Habanero, but the Peruvian White Habanero is bullet shaped. Habanero peppers are most commonly red or orange in color, but other Habanero varieties also exist.

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 like the Ghost pepper,  Trinidad Scorpion Butch T, and Carolina Reaper. Don't let the bullet-like appearance of this pepper fool you, the White Habanero ranges from 100,000 to 350,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU), which is about 70 times hotter than an average Jalapeño

Like other Habanero varieties, the White Habanero pepper is very spicy and has a slight fruity flavor, which makes it very popular in hot sauces, salsas, and powders. 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 Orange HabaneroPeach HabaneroRed Savina HabaneroCaribbean Red Habanero, and Honey Fire Habanero. The Habanero pepper was the first pepper ever grown at Tyler Farms.
