The Caribbean Red Habanero pepper is almost TWICE as hot as the regular habanero pepper, with a pungent fruity flavor that’s guaranteed to fill your taste buds – well, the remaining ones that didn’t singe off by the intense heat!

These bushy plants grow up to 4 ft. tall and produce bountiful yields of these 2” long heirloom peppers. With so many pods on these branches, you may want to stake it for added support. Pods start green and turn to their signature red color with wrinkled skin and shape like a small lantern. Caribbean Red Habaneros can be picked when they’re green, but for a sweeter flavor, you’ll want to wait until they mature to red.

We recommend wearing latex gloves and other protection when handling these peppers. With a heat level of 400,000 SHUs, these peppers are loaded with capsaicin which can cause irritation and pain when exposed to your eyes and even to your skin. When you get past this incredible heat, you’ll notice the citrusy and fruity flavors, with some saying they taste smoky undertones as well. Caribbean Red Habanero peppers are the perfect spicy addition to cooked foods and salsas but are even better when dried and ground into pepper flakes and chili pepper powder.

Caribbean Red Peppers fantastic

I received the seeds quickly, with instructions on how to successfully plant the seeds, and I now have deathly trees growing. I am looking forward to my first harvest later this summer.

Getting Started

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
