To harvest, cut rather than pull fruits from the plants when fully colored orange or red. With Suaves, you’ll enjoy habaneros’ unique taste without their incendiary heat. Use freely in all kinds of fresh salsas, sauces, jerk rubs and marinades. You’ll find them no hotter than mellow New Mexico green chilies, with Suave Red rated a mild 580 Scoville units and Suave Orange a smooth 835 heat units, compared to the 575,000 heat units of the normal habanero chile!

Peppers need full sun at least 6 hours per day. Mulch well to maintain even moisture. Provide short stakes or cages to support heavy sets of ripening fruit. Check containers often and water regularly; when plants begin setting fruit they may require daily watering.


Habaneros need warm conditions. Don’t transplant outdoors until night temperatures stay securely above 55°F (13°C). Prepare soil well with aged manure or compost. Plant only robust seedlings with well-developed roots. Mulch plants to maintain even soil moisture. Keep well weeded, watered and fertilized.
