Meet the Cutest Habanero Orange Pepper

My husband was recently given a few Habanero Orange Peppers and they were so cute, that I really just could not help myself from taking several pictures of the peppers.
I am yet to cook with them...maybe some fresh super spicy salsa?
Thinking of cooking with small spicy peppers, I remember THIS incident, which you probably remember as well, if you do follow my blog regularly. 

If you are curious about some "pepper knowledge", then you will be glad to find out that this tiny and oh-so-cute Habanero is originating from Mexico, it germinates slower than the other pepper varieties, but this chile variety is worth the wait as it is 40 times hotter than a standard Jalapeno Pepper! 
At first it produces light green, thin, crinkled peppers which ripen to a wonderful orange-red coloration.  
Each chile pepper is 1½ inches long by about 1 inch across. 
Matures in about 85 days.

We returned tonight from an OKC trip and here are two pictures of myself that my loving husband took this after-noon by Lake Hefner. 

As a piece of advice, you could give pepper seeds a try and have them grow in your kitchen or garden, for the convenience of being able to pick them yourself as a fruit of your loving labor.
Very good seeds can be found HERE


  1. Thanks for the comment on my glad. Glad to hear you enjoyed the biscotti recipe. I will admit it is one of my favorites as well. I also agree with you, wrapping chicken in bacon is definitely the best way to go. But then again, what isn't better when paired with bacon. :-)

  2. Some how my typing above didn't quite come out right. I meant thanks for teh comment on my blog. :-)

  3. Love me some habaneros. Just love them. When I make my homemade pizza sauce, I mince one up and cook it with the onions and garlic in oil before adding the tomato puree and the paste. It adds just enough of a kick that you taste it, but it doesn't overwhelm your tongue!

    I also make some ancho chile salsa with habanero -

    And yes they photograph fantastically. Enjoy!
