The Condor’s beak habanero comes from Peru and may well be the most decorative habanero around! The pods are such an awesome purple colour that you could grow it as an ornamental alone. Eventually they will ripen to red and you can enjoy the heat! They are not quite as hot as your typical habanero but the taste sure is there. The Condor’s beak is one of the lesser known types of habaneros and makes a great feature in the garden or in a pot.

The Scoville heat unit for this variety is : 50 000 to 80 000 SHU

Important to Note.

Chilli peppers can be tricky to germinate and especially so with the rarer super hot varieties patience is needed as they can take up to 40 days to germinate in ideal conditions. We also recommend that a heat pad is used when germinating chillies of the Capsicum chinense species. All of our chillis are grown in isolation to avoid cross pollination. As chillis are rampant cross pollinators it is not uncommon for variances to appear in the fruit as chillis can cross pollinate with fruit from plants a few houses or kilometres away. The only way to ensure with 100% certainty that cross pollination does not occur is to use pollination bags on each flower when the plant starts to bud and before the flowers open.
