Like most peppers, the habanero peppers are green and they change color as they mature. Harvested green or red when ripened, the habanero pepper packs some heat, plus a fruity, citrusy flavor, and a wonderful floral aroma. The combination of heat, aroma and citrus flavor make habanero peppers a popular ingredient in salsas, hot sauces, and spicy prepared foods.
The habanero pepper is the hottest of all the chili peppers Del Carmen provides to food and beverage manufacturers. It ranks as high as 350,000 units on the Scoville scale.
