Habanero Mayan elongated habanero peppers may look different, but they have the same fruity/heat flavor profile as the traditional red habanero but with a slightly lower Scoville heat unit. Sturdy compact 36” plants have good leaf coverage which protects the fruit from sunburn. 90 days from transplant.
4,000 seeds/oz.; 21-26 days, 72°F.
Start early indoors and transplant well after last frost. Grow seedlings at 62°F night temperature and 70°F day temperature. Lower temperatures permanently reduce plant productivity.
Scovilles are a measure of heat.
