Habanero pepper (Capsicum chinense) "Caribbean Yellow"), an extremely spicy version of the habanero pepper, clocks in at up to 445,000 Scoville units. In contrast, the hottest cayenne peppers reach only 70,000 units on this heat-measuring scale. You can easily grow this type of plant in even a small garden, but take caution; wear rubber gloves and a mask when handling the fruits of this firecracker and use it very sparingly when cooking -- just a few grams of Habanero will heat up a whole bowl of salsa.
Easy-to-grow Caribbean pepper, plants thrive in all climate zones as an annual. These peppers prefer full sunlight exposure, warm temperatures -- about 70 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and 60 degrees at night -- and well-drained soil. They tolerate acidic soil, flourishing in the pH range of 6.0 to 6.8, but do not tolerate frost.
Plant peppers 2 feet apart from one another in the spring, with soil temperatures kept at around 80 degrees Fahrenheit. The Caribbean Red thrives in moist, but not waterlogged, soil. This plant takes well to blood meal, fish emulsion, poultry manure and steer manure fertilizers, as well as water-soluble vegetable plant food and 5-10-5 general-use fertilizer.
This fast-growing bush produces edible fruits within about 80 to 100 days of planting. Caribbean Red pepper plants bear fruit in abundance and bloom showy flowers in the summer and fall. Fruit may be harvested at the immature green stage or fully ripened red stage. With proper care, the Caribbean Red pepper plant reaches mature heights of about 30 inches and widths of about 15 inches.
All pepper varieties are Heirloom and/or OP(Open Pollinated.) and Organically Grown
Peppers often like to take their sweet time germinating. They can be up in a week, and some will take almost a month. Even with paper towel germination testing, they can take long. I’m not sure why, but it is a normal occurrence. So plan ahead and make sure you start them early enough! Also remember they like heat to germinate so make sure you have a heating mat or something to keep the soil warm. Placing them up on top of the fridge often works too since it is normally warmer up there.
