HABANERO PEPPER HISTORY


The habanero pepper is 85 centuries old. It is believed to have originated in Cuba. Although it is now grown in Belize, Costa Rica, Texas, and even California, the majority of habanero peppers are harvested by the ton in the Yucatan each year. The habanero pepper is definitely one of the hottest peppers known to man at 200,000 - 300,000 Scoville heat units. It is second only to the Red Savina habanero pepper at 350,000 - 550,000 Scoville heat units. To put this in perspective, the Tabasco pepper is only at 30,000 - 50,000 Scoville heat units while the jalapeno pepper is rated at a mere 3,500 - 4,000 Scoville heat units! NOW THAT'S HOT!
