Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Habanero Orange Mini Pepper
Capsicum chinense Habanero Orange Mini Pepper Seed (105 days)
200,000 Scoville heat units (Jalapeno ~2,500 Scoville units)
Similar to it's cousin from the Carribean, the Habanero Orange Mini is native to the Yucatan.
Plants grow to be about 36 inches tall, with fruit that is tapered, lantern-shaped, and grows to be about 1 x 1.5 inch pods.
Thick wrinkled light-green flesh ripens to a lovely golden-orange. The seed can be slow to germinate, so make sure to give it similar conditions to it's native land. Such as growing in warm moist conditions.
This may be a Caribbean favorite used in sauces, but for those unfamiliar with the power of Habanero, please be careful and use in moderation.
