From the same family as the Habanero, this variety was bred by our friends at the Chilli Pepper Institute of New Mexico State University (CPI) and has all the flavours of a Habanero but far less of the heat.

The word 'Suave' is Spanish for mellow, smooth or mild. The pods have a citrus-like flavour with an orange lemony overtone and an apricot aroma. The very mild heat is felt in the back of the mouth and throat and not on the lips and tongue. A heat rating of just 800 SHUs makes them around 280 times cooler than a conventional Habanero and over 500 times cooler than our Caribbean Red Habanero.

The 1-1½" (2.5-4 cm) long by 1-1½" (2.5-4 cm) diameter fruits start off pale green before turning red. The plant has a bushy and dense habit, growing to around 3 feet (90 cm) tall and 2 feet (60 cm) in diameter. Fruiting is prolific, with 100 fruits per plant not unusual.

To ensure good germination a constant compost temperature of 82° - 86° f (28° - 30° C) is recommended. Germination can be slow and take three weeks or more.

  • Origin: New Mexico.
  • Heat: Cool - approximately 800 SHUs.
