- (C. chinense) This smooth habanero-type pepper ripens from green to red. 2" long and about 1.5" in diameter. Some pods have a cute pointed tip. Very hot, with delicious flavor and wonderful aroma, it really brightens up our ajika sauce and adds a new flavor dimension to many dishes. Dries up easily for adding more heat into your home made paprika. (15 seeds / packet)
