Orange Habaneros is a late-maturing hot pepper with thin walls and a unique lantern shape. Matures to a bright orange color and really packs the heat (100,000-300,000 Scoville units). It is believed that this variety was domesticated in the Yucatan several thousand years ago. Ripens from green to bright orange color with thin skin and waxy exterior. The pods have a distinctive lantern-like shape and are small at 2” long and 1“-2” wide.

Habanero Orange Pepper Seeds
Habaneros are known for their slow germination time and must be started in warm, moist conditions. Germination of hot peppers, such as Habanero can take 3 weeks.
In early spring, start seeds indoors 8 weeks prior to warm nightly temperatures. Place the seeds in sterile media and cover 1/4” deep. Provide 85°F bottom heat, bright light, and keep moist at all times. Seeds will germinate in 7 - 21 days. Transplant seedlings into pots and grow until there are 6 true leaves on the plant. Plant them directly into rich soil, 30” apart or into large 5-gallon containers. Only plant peppers outdoors on a cloudy day, just prior to getting rain. Plant when soil is warm, at least 2 weeks after last frost, and when temperatures remain above 70 F.
All seeds available for shipping. Standard shipping is free on orders of $35+.
