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.

Great growers, not our favorite pepper November 30, 2018
Reviewer: Paige from Livonia, NY United States  
These peppers grew amazingly well, and we had an abundant crop! Unfortunately, no one in the family ended up liking the flavor of them so we definitely won't be growing them again.

very very late here in western Oregon, but we had a long late fall so it matured and they were delicious!

Best crop of all October 24, 2018
Reviewer: George Oliver from East Haven, CT United States  
Too many peppers to count.  Harvested right up
to first predicted frost.  The freezer is loaded!
Would give it ten stars if I could.

Reviewer: Matthew Glenn from Hector, NY United States  
Love the Habanadas. I am selling at Ithaca farmers market right now and I have them on the table. I get a lot of questions about them and have to convince people they are sweet.
