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.
