Habanada Sweet Pepper

Habanero Flavor without Heat

  • Intense floral aroma and fruity flavor
  • No heat!
  • Crisp, thin-walled, 2-3 in. peppers
  • Eat at green or orange stage
  • A favorite of chefs and foodies
A taste-test favorite for both sweet and hot pepper fans during our farm trials! Crisp, thin-walled, 2-3 in. peppers retain the intense, floral aroma and fruity flavor of habaneros, but have no heat. Bred at Cornell University, Habanada Sweet Pepper is a flavor bomb for eating fresh—seeds and all. Also excellent when braised or roasted. Chefs and foodies love adding these peppers to desserts and other recipes. Eat at the green stage when they are quite aromatic or allow to ripen to orange for maximum flavor. The fruits hold their quality for a long time on the plant. 70 DAYS.
