The Red Habanero Hot Pepper has a maturity date of 80 days for green and 95 for red. This Heirloom variety is a rare treat. It's very spicy but also has a unique flavor. Folks, use this pepper with care--it's very hot! It's around 40,000 on the Scoville scale. Habaneros, any color, need a long growing season. The best way is to start indoors about six to eight weeks before you plan to set them out. Good luck and happy growing!!!
