Cultivar ‘Habanero’

The habanero (pron.: /ˌhɑːbəˈnɛər/; Spanish: [aβaˈneɾo]) is a variety of chili pepper. When used in English, it is sometimes spelled (and pronounced) habañero—the diacritical mark being added as a hyperforeignism.[1] Unripe habaneros are green, and they color as they mature. Common colors are orange and red, but white, brown, and pink are also seen. Typically a ripe habanero chili is 2–6 centimetres (0.8–2.4 in) long. Habanero chilis are intensely hot, rated 100,000–350,000 on the Scoville scale.[2]
