The uniquely colored Mustard Habanero originated in the Pennsylvania gardens of James Weaver, who discovered the strange variation and grew it out to develop a stable and interesting new variety.
Pods start out light green with purple highlights, and mature to a distinctive mustard color and then to a flaming orange.
They have heat levels similar to regular habaneros. A taste test indicated that this variety also has a 'mustard overtone'.
