A delicately-coloured, very flavourful habanero with practically no heat.

Capsicum chinense

Sea Spring Seeds’ very own – and very mild – habanero. The thin-fleshed, cone-shaped fruit measure about 2.5 x 6cm, and mature from a delicate lime green to a subtle salmon orange. Because they are almost heatless, you can enjoy their crunchy texture and fresh perfumed taste without fear of burning your mouth.

The medium-sized plants are quite tidy and disciplined, and can be grown, with some support, either in the ground, grow bags or pots 5 to 10 litres in size.

Apricot is a treat for cooks keen on introducing new flavours to their food. The fruit are particularly good raw, and are delicious stuffed or added to salads, sandwiches and drinks.

Heat level: very mild (approx. 700 SHU)
