Red Habanero Seedling
The Red Habanero is originally from the Amazons, and is used throughout Caribbean and Mexican cuisines. Hotter then it’s orange cousin, the Red Habanero has an excellent level of spice, but beware that it adds quite a bit of flavour to your dish because of the typical Habanero aroma.

Take the hassle out of germinating seeds
Having a hard time germinating seeds or want to take the hassle out of growing from seed and get a head start come Spring time?
Our seedlings have been germinated by us under controlled conditions earlier on in the year so they’re ready come Spring. They will come with a minimum of 6-8 mature leaves, typically as pictured.
Plants have not been topped, as we leave this up to you. If you are unsure what topping is, please have a look at this video on YouTube.
We’ve germinated seeds from pods we’ve harvested from our own Red Habanero mother plants.
Seedlings are supplied in a 50mm Coco Coir Jiffy which can be planted straight into the soil or the netting removed and the seedling planted. Just make sure the Jiffy and surrounded coco is saturated with water before removing the netting to minimise root disturbance.
