The Caribbean Red Habanero is a hotter fruitier cousin to the Orange habanero without the earthy bitter taste. The heat comes on much more violently than the Orange Habanero varieties with less of a slow build up. It burns mostly around the underside and back side of the tongue, the back corner of the throat, and around the adams apple. It cruises for a good 5 minutes and takes a long time to fade out, but the excellent habanero flavour will still be lingering long afterwards.
The Plant Grows from 24"-30" high when planted in the ground and has a tendency to branch out laterally after reaching that height. They tend to be quite bushy plants that produce dense amounts of pods, which hide under medium sized emerald green leaves.
