Originating from the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, this pepper variety can potentially be twice as hot as a standard (orange) Habanero chile.
Typical citrusy-smoky flavor of the habaneros with twice the heat, these fireballs are a perfect addition to a pot of soup or chili, and they make killer hot sauce.
Grows nicely in northern climates, either in summer gardens or in large pots. The chiles mature from green to bright red, and grow to about 1 ½” in length and 1” in width.
