— VEGETABLES – PEPPERS
The Habanada pepper is the habanero without his spiciness. With a delicious sweet Caribbean taste. And as the name implies: nada spiciness! But it does have the delicious aromas of the spicy habanero!
Habanada at the Scoville scale
The Scoville scale is used to measure the amount of capsaicin to show the “hotness” of the pepper. Capsaicin is a substance which stimulates receptors on the tongue that are sensitive to heat and pain. This gives a burning sensation. To prevent overheated situations, it is recommended to check the hotness on the Scoville scale!
Availability habanada peppers
The Habanada was developed by plant grower Michael Mazourek and was first sold in 2014 at the Culinary Breeding Network Variety Showcase.
How to store
Chili peppers have to be kept in a cool place but preferably not in the fridge, as the pepper will lose his taste.
How to eat
Halve the chilli and remove the seeds (unless you really like spicy of course). If necessary: use gloves when preparing these peppers and don’t rub your eyes. The chillies are often popular and are often used in Asian cuisines to make sambal, curry paste and salsa.
