The NuMex Suave Orange pepper is another low-heat Habanero variety emerging from the Chili Pepper Institute at New Mexico State University. While having milder heat, the Suave Orange pepper retains the same fruity flavors and aromas as other Habanero peppers.

Expect these pepper plants to reach 4 ft. tall, with some plants reaching higher when planted directly into the ground. These plants are strong and hold up against its prolific yields of 2.5” long, lantern-shaped peppers. Pods grow upright and appear more wrinkled than other strains. Watch these Suave Orange peppers ripen from a green to a sparkling yellow-orange.

You’ll get the same signature Habanero flavor with each pepper – fruity, citrusy, tropical – but with very little heat involved. This enticing combination makes for a very versatile pepper that can be added to many fresh foods or used in cooking. You won’t forget the entrancing aroma of these Suave Orange peppers.

  • 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.
