Typically, an habanero is grown in a somewhat acidic soil and cultivars claim that if they are watered too much that they will put out fruit that is bitter to the taste. Amazingly, aquaponic farming breaks all the rules. We are able to produce a multitude of deliciously and devilishly hot habaneros. Our peppers put off that fruity aroma and taste unbelievably awesome. Perhaps you like a bit of heat and find the Jalapeno lacking. Then this is your pepper. Nowhere near the hottest peppers in the world, the habanero rests comfortably in the middle of the scale. Cooking with these peppers is a true treat as they do have a fruity taste, just before the heat melts your tongue off!
Did You Know? Habaneros contain more capsaicin than most chili peppers. In 2006 the “American Journal of Clinical Nutrition” found that the capsaicin consumed in chili peppers appeared to regulate insulin levels following a meal. There is more than strong evidence that a regular diet of hot chili peppers can help prevent diabetes.
