Capsicum chinense "Black Habanero"

black habanero chilli

Notes

Rather variable in the colour and pungency of the ripe chillies, which vary from dark brown to black. This is clearly a cross which has been released before it is sufficiently uniform. The chillies are larger than most habaneros, and produced in reasonable numbers but ripen rather late in the season.

Culinary

A larger than average habanero chilli with significant variation in pungency, but not excessively hot. Suitable for stuffing to make chiles rellenos or for chopping into a salsa.
