Organic Habanda Sweet Snacking Pepper Taste what all the excitement is about! Habanada is the heatless habanero with irresistably tropical and floral sweetness much lauded by Chef Dan Barber of Blue Hill. Bred by our friend and mentor Dr. Michael Mazourek of Cornell University, Habanada is as versatile as it is flavorful. Indeed, Habanada stole the show at the 2014 Culinary Breeding Network Variety Showcase where Chef Nora Antene of Le Pigeon introduced Habanada sorbet. Seared, roasted, braised or raw Habanada has transformed our concept of peppers.

Once they begin to produce, Habanada is immensely abundant; expect to harvest at least a pint a week. The flavor and sweetness of Habanada develops as they ripen from lime green to florescent orange. We love to pick them fully orange and enjoy them whole, seeds and all. Just before the first frost we'll harvest all the remaining green fruits and sear them with salt and pepper for our final toast to fresh Habanada and look forward to the next season.

The plants themselves are vigorous and are remarkably productive in average garden soil. With too much compost Habanada becomes tall and lush without putting much energy into fruit production, so be sure to not over-fertilize. This is one of many reasons why breeding for organic production is so vital and why a portion of each sale will go directly back to Dr. Mazourek to continue his extraordinary work.

Enjoy the interview from with Dr. Mazourek to hear more of Habanada's incredible story.

Loved the look November 6, 2016
Reviewer: Teresa Bishop from Barton, NY United States  
This pepper was shaped like a hot wax pepper, but was sweet. I didn't water these enough this summer so the pepper production was late, but prolific. thin walls

Reviewer: Ashley from Washington County, NY  
These peppers where a big hit with my chefs.  They are very productive, beautiful to behold, oh-so-tasty.
Heatless?  Well...not altogether.

Best of all no-heat habaneros January 5, 2016
Reviewer: Rebekah Rice from Delmar, NY  
We grew this last year, along with two other no-heat habaneros, and this was the most delicious as well as the most productive, of the three.  Nine Mile Farm CSA glowingly recommends it.
