Types and Varieties of Habanero Peppers - Red Habanero

Red Habanero

Although it’s not the hottest variety, the red version of the classic habanero can reach an eye-popping 200,000-300,000 Scoville Units, and the dried form has been measured at 445,000. These chiles have a slight lantern shape and grow to about 1 ½” long. They have a fruity flavor similar to other habaneros and are delicious in just about any dish, especially salsas and hot sauces.
