Review of Chichen Itza Habanero

I don't know where the seeds came from.  I got plants for free at my local hot pepper expert supplier.  From what I read they are a hybrid habanero.

I have to share how excellent this variety has grown for me.  I have grown a lot of chinense peppers and this is one is a money-maker for the farmers markets.  By far the most prolific producer I have ever seen.  My relatively small, compact plants are LOADED with pods.  I counted 15 pods on one 10-inch branch!

Other advantages to this variety is that:

  • The pods are very large and attractive (standard hab orange)
  • The heat is milder at 100,000 to 180,000 scovilles 
  • Sweet and juicy 
  • Rapid vegetative growth
  • Early harvest
