Habanada Pepper Seeds - Capsicum Chinense - Sweet & No Heat

Quantity: 10 Seeds

Species: Capsicum Chinense

Scovilles: 0


Habanada is an amazingly unique pepper variety, and a real marvel of natural breeding techniques. This variety is a truly heatless variety of habanero, so those who cannot handle any heat, can experience the wonderful flavour that habaneros have to offer, without any of the burn. The plants grow to be about 2.5 feet tall, and 2 feet wide, and produce a heavy crop of peppers that taste fruity and floral. When planted early in the season, these peppers are one of the first varieties to ripen. These plants do very well in northern climates because they don't need to spend energy on developing the heat inducing chemical, capsaicin. The pods taste amazing fresh, but also make a great sauce. They can be dried and ground into a very delicious powder too. 


All seeds are organic and open pollinated.

  • Growing Instructions

    Its best to start Habanada 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 1/8 - 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 4-8 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 10°C or higher. Due to This variety's compact size, these peppers are perfectly suited for growing in pots or containers; I recommend using a 5 gallon pot or larger. These peppers do best when grown in full sun.
