Habanero Chile Powder

The habanero chile (Capsicum chinense) is one of the most intensely hot, spicy chile peppers that you will come across. The species was misnamed in 1776 by a Dutch physician who was collecting plants throughout the Caribbean for Emperor Francis I. The species was incorrectly identified as "chinense", as he believed this chile had originated in China. The name stuck, and this "Chinense" hot pepper is not from China, but originated from the Caribbean and South America region.

Our Habanero powder is pure 100% ground whole Habaneros (including the veins and seeds).

Available in 1/2 cup glass jar with shaker top.
