Caribbean Red Habanero Seeds - Capsicum Chinense - Very Hot & Flavourful

Quantity: 10 Seeds

Species: Capsicum Chinense

Caribbean Red is one of the most delicious habañero varieties out there. Not only are these peppers very hot, but they offer an excellent flavour and aroma. The plants grow to be about 2.5 feet tall, and 2 feet wide, and are very prolific. If your heat tolerance allows, the pods taste amazing fresh, but they're typically used in cooking dishes and also to make a great hot sauce. The pods can be dried and ground into powder too. These peppers are potent, so a little goes a long way!


All seeds are organic and open pollinated.

  • Growing Instructions

    It's best to start pepper seeds as early in the season as possible; we start them here on the farm in January. It's good to sow them in a sterile growing medium; most available seed starting soils should do the job nicely; we use sunshine mix (peat moss and perlite). The soil should be made moist, but not damp. Sow the seeds 1/4 inch below the soil surface. Store in a warm area until tiny sprouts emerge from the soil. A heat mat aids in this step, but is not necessary. Seeds can take between 2-8 weeks to germinate, but they can sometimes take less time too. Once germinated, and the first true leaf has formed, it's time to pot up to a larger container that contains a good quality potting soil. Transplant to their final location when the nighttime temperatures are consistently 8°C or higher. These peppers grow very well in pots or containers; I recommend 5 gallon pots of larger. Peppers do best when grown in full sun.
