Did You Know...

The Habanero chili (play /ˌhɑːbəˈnɛr/; Spanish: [aβaˈneɾo]; Capsicum chinense) is one of the most intensely piquant species of chili peppers. Unripe habaneros are green, and they color as they mature. Common colors are orange and red, but white, brown, and pink are also seen. Typically a ripe habanero is 2–6 centimetres (0.8–2.4 in) long. Habanero chili peppers are rated 100,000–350,000 on the Scoville scale.
