Originally from the Amazon, this adorable and orange chile pepper has travelled abroad throughout the Americas and Caribbean. At each location it has endeared itself to those who fancy themselves scholars of the almighty Scoville scale. (Which, by the way, the habanero is shockingly high on at about 100,000 heat units.)
The habanero, however, isn’t just a fiery redhead adored for its temper alone. The habanero possesses an intense citrusy flavor not found in many other chile peppers. Dried, the aroma of oranges and tangerines rise up, and when reconstituted in water you’ll find notes of yellow nectarine. Delightful in sauces and salsa, the habanero pepper offers complexity in taste and the subtlety of a freight train.
