Scoville Heat Units (SHU):
350,000 – 577,000

Red Savina Habanero peppers are much hotter than traditional Orange Habaneros and even the Caribbean Red Habanero. In fact, the Red Savina Habanero was the Guinness World Records "Hottest Pepper in the World" from 1994 until 2006, when it was replaced by the Ghost pepper. When plowing his field of Orange Habaneros, pepper grower Frank Garcia noticed he had one red pepper and decided to harvest this pepper that seemed out of place. He eventually started selectively breeding the mutant red pepper, and the Red Savina Habanero pepper was born.

The Red Savina Habanero is one of the hottest peppers before reaching the super-hot level on the Scoville Scale, so it’ll help prepare you for the Ghost peppers and Trinidad Scorpion peppers that are much hotter. The Red Savina Habanero ranges from 350,000 to 577,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU). Like other Habanero varieties, the Red Savina Habanero pepper is extremely spicy and has a fruity flavor, which makes it very popular in hot sauces and hot salsas.

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 HabaneroWhite HabaneroCaribbean Red Habanero, and Honey Fire Habanero. The Habanero pepper was the first pepper ever grown at Tyler Farms.

    OK so here’s what I did with the habanero peppers that I bought from you guys last year. I take them to weddings, family gatherings, and other festive events and then pressure my family and friends into eating them. It’s a blast!

    Bought these seeds 2 months ago and now I have little plants growing. Thankfully I was able to get almost all of my seeds to sprout. It's going to be fun cooking with all of these.
