Looking for an uncommon Habanero variety? Then pick up these Peach Habanero pepper seeds. Like most other types of Habaneros, the peach color originates in the Caribbean. As you can see in the photos, the Peach Habanero grows a bit longer than most other varieties reaching over 2″ in length and about one inch in diameter. The fruit on these plants starts out a light green and matures to the beautiful peach color. The compact plants grow in a bush like manor with lots of branching and reach an average or 24″ in height though we did have some that reached 36″ tall. The flavor of these pods is fruity, slightly sweet, and they’re very hot. Scoville rating of these peppers tops out at about 350,000 SHU. You can expect huge amounts of fruit on these plants. The branches on our plants were sagging with the weight of all the pods so we do recommend staking or caging the Peach Habanero.
While you may see the traditional Red or Orange Habaneros at the market, it’s unlikely you’ll find the peach on grocery store shelves or as seedlings at the nursery. That said, if you want to enjoy these beautiful, delicious pods then you should pick up these Peach Habanero pepper seeds. Be sure and check out the rest of our Habanero pepper seeds as well.
These peppers can be used fresh or grilled on burgers, sandwiches, salads or any other meal. The color of these peppers would also make a nice-looking hot sauce. Since these plants are highly productive, you’ll likely have excess harvest which can be dehydrated and ground into powder for later use as a seasoning mix. We have an article here about how to dehydrate hot peppers.
For an abundant harvest you should start these Peach Habanero pepper seeds indoors at least 10-12 weeks before your last frost date. Be sure and check out our guide on starting pepper plants indoors.
