Habanero is one of the world’s hottest chillies and, luckily, it grows well in our temperate zone. It delights spice connoisseurs. The rather small fruits turn from green to bright red as they ripen in this variety. They go great in salsas, hot sauces, and other recipes where you need to give it a kick, but treat them with caution. For example, do not rub your eyes after slicing these peppers. The shrub-like plant grows up to 120 cm high and is an eye-catcher with its wide leaves.
Sow in early March into pots in a warm place. Transplant into the field from May 20 in a cold frame or protected space at a distance of 40 ✕ 40 cm. Tie to a stake to give support and harvest in August. Keep free of frost.
