Product Description

When Wilbur Scoville first devised a means to test the heat of peppers, his hottest entry then came in at 20,000 units. Habanero and Thai chilies can go as high as 60,000. Compare that to the sweet bell pepper at zero. When hot peppers are consumed, capsaicinoids bind with pain receptors in the mouth and throat that are responsible for sensing heat. Once activated by the capsaicinoids, these receptors send a message to the brain that the person has consumed something hot. The brain responds to the burning sensation by raising the heart rate, increasing perspiration and release of endorphins. Hot peppers should be eaten with caution! Habanero Chile Pepper Rare 30-36" Tender Annual Native to Central America's tropical lowlands, this world-famous, scalding hot peppers thrives where summers are long, hot, and humid. Lantern-shaped fruits ripen to a lovely golden orange. Reported to be 1,000 times hotter than Jalepeno! Planting Depth: 1/4"Soil Temp. for Germ.: 70-85 F Days to Germ.: 14-28 Plant Spacing: 18"-24" Days to Maturity: 90-100 Full Sun Moderate Water
