Hot Peppers - Habanero (White)
HOT HOT! At 350,000 SHU, the white habanero is classified as being "highly pungent", and is still a properly hot pepper (even if it is a few levels down from the Carolina Reaper)
Note: These should only be planted and left outside when any and all risk of frost is gone! A cold snap may severely harm, or even outright kill, these plants. Please try to keep them in a warm place indoors until it's safe to plant.
- As with all peppers, these require as much bright, direct light as is possible (at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight per day).
- Water regularly making sure that the peppers do no dry out entirely. They need to be in a well-draining potting mix, or in a pot with drainage holes so that excess water is able to drain away. Peppers want to be moist, not soggy, and can die from root-rot if left in standing water for too long.
