85 days — Very Hot. The fruits are about one inch long by one inch across, have thin crinkled flesh, are light green in color as they are developing and ripen to orange-red.

Depending on your specific growing conditions, 'Habanero' peppers can reach between 60,000 to 450,000 Scoville Units. That is about two hundred times hotter than typical Jalapeno peppers! Although they are very hot, unlike other peppers touted for their heat, they are also flavorful. 'Habanero' peppers are are used to add heat and flavor to recipes, jellies, sauces, chocolates, and even infused into alcohol.

They can be a little slow to germinate so be patient. Each packet contains 20 seeds.

Tips for Growing Habanero Peppers
I always start my habaneros indoors, with some as early as February. I use these as "testers" for my super hot peppers, like the bhut jolokia, to make sure I have optimal growing conditions. These don't disappoint. I use a waterproof heating source and a good light source and these usually pop up in 5 days and start growing.

Peppers were very hot as promised.
Grew this plant last spring (2011). Took a while to germinate. Almost gave up hope and then 7 of the 8 I planted came up. When the plants were 1-1/2 inch high I moved them outdoors. Over the next 3 days an insect attacked them. Two survived, so I moved them inside next to a screened window. When they were 6 inches tall I moved them back outside and they were fine. Peppers were very hot as promised. So, a good plant, but it did need a bit of babying.

Follow the directions on the back of the packets . . .
I planted all of these outdoors in early spring and not one showed its head in the dirt. Next time, I'll start them indoors.

[Note from Mike: Although this feedback doesn't talk about the attributes of the variety, it does emphasize a point I try and get across . . . shortcuts in gardening rarely result in success! Follow the directions on the back of the packets and in gardening books. Peppers must be started indoors in mid to late winter if you want a harvest.]
