Chili Pepper: Habanero Orange

A beautiful looking and complex tasting chili pepper that is easy to grow. In Perth, Western Australia they are ripening in Summer and Autumn. The plant is a spreader rather than a vertical powerhouse.

Warning, they are hot :). I have also read that they impart a kind of apricot flavour.

      1. That makes sense. Don’t want to have to take a trip to the emergency room, just for hot chillis! Are the other ones the Carolina Reaper ones?
