Looking for a pepper to make you a good way? The Habanero Mayan Red pepper, or also known as the Habanero Maya Red pepper, is an outstanding pepper to grow but will burn your tongue pretty quickly!

The pepper plant will produce 3-4" long bright red, glossy, lantern-shaped peppers, and the peppers are longer and more slender than the typical Habanero. These peppers will ripen from green to bright red, and they can be ready to eat when they are green after 70 days or when they are red around 90 days. The red habanero peppers are similar in shape to the Paper Lantern pepper, but these are larger. The pepper plants have early maturity and produce well in cooler climates. So, if you live in a northern climate and love super-hot peppers, then you must try growing these peppers!

Once you take a bite of the crunchy, juicy pepper, you’ll taste sweet, fruity tones with a less Habanero flavor. These peppers are great for making sauces and marinades, and are also good for frying and making chili powder.

  • 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.
