Black Habanero-The Black habanero is a medium heat chinense variety developed by a grower in Europe. It is a cross between a Purple Habanero and a Long chocolate habanero. Black habanero pods get between 2 to 4 inches in length and resemble the shape of a Nu-Mex Big Jim but smaller. Plants produce large amounts of pods so staking may be necessary. This chile has a rich flavor almost raisin like and is excellent for stuffing. Pods mature from light green to a dark chocolate color sometimes with a red tint and sometimes so dark they almost look black.
