The Habanero Paper Lantern has a hot and smoky, sweet and fruity flavour, these beautiful, ornamental pendent habanero pepper pods mature from lime green to vivid orange and bright red.  The crispy, thin-walled, wrinkled pods are distinctive in shape - paper lantern, yes, but teardrop too - and the heat is ferocious for a beginner and satisfyingly challenging even for a chillihead.  It means this is a great allrounder habanero-type pepper for hotter sauces and fresh summer salsas.

Growing Info

Boasting an earlier and more abundant production than other varieties of habanero, the Paper Lantern is a reliable cultivar when grown in pots and sheltered borders.

Cooking & Eating

Along with blistering heat, Paper Lanterns have a sweet fruity tang and are perfect for a hot sauce or barbecue marinades.  They freeze well but their fruity flavour is best when the pods are fresh.  Use in spicy soups, stews and salsas.
