Capsicum habanero, commonly known as the habanero pepper, is a small but extremely hot chili pepper. It's native to Central and South America and is one of the hottest peppers in the world, with a Scoville heat rating of between 100,000 and 350,000 units.

This habanero pepper variety is red when ripe with a wrinkly texture and has a unique fruity flavor with a floral aroma. It's often used in Caribbean and Latin American cuisine to add heat and flavor to dishes such as salsas, marinades, and hot sauces.

Due to their extreme heat, habanero peppers should be used sparingly and with caution. When handling them, it's important to wear gloves and avoid touching your face or eyes
