Organic sweet Habanero Chile Peppers  

Sweet habanero chile peppers are small, lantern-shaped pods, averaging 5 to 7 centimeters in length and 2 to 5 centimeters in diameter, and have many indentations, folds, and creases on the surface tapering to a point on the non-stem end. The skin is waxy, glossy, and smooth, ripening from green to bright red or orange when mature. Underneath the surface, the flesh is thin, crisp, pale red, green, or orange, depending on maturity and encases a central cavity filled with round and flat, cream-colored seeds. Sweet habanero chile peppers have a fruity, floral, and sweet flavor with little to no heat.

Habanero peppers are a very popular part of the Mexican diet. The pod is eaten both raw and added to fried and cooked dishes - mainly stews such as chili or curry. The rather thin walls of the peppers make them also an excellent raw material for drying - in this form they can be stored for months without losing their taste. Before use, it is enough to soak the dried habanero in water for a few minutes.

Peppers quickly lose their flavor, so it's better to buy small amounts and store in airtight containers away from sunlight.

Sweet habanero peppers are an excellent source of potassium and vitamins A and C, which are antioxidants that can help improve the skin, boost the immune system, and protect against environmental aggressors.

Chefs use paprika as an addition to cheeses, meats, tomato sauces, soups and chili powder. It is also used in stews, aleo and in Hungarian Tokan.
