"These extra-large Hottie peppers become almost twice the size of open-pollinated habanero varieties. They mature earlier and are a bit less pungent than other habaneros also, making them more user-friendly for some gardeners. Peppers become 2 1/2 inches long and orange when ripe, and grow on plants that stay a little smaller than other habaneros. You should have plenty of these Hotties in your garden as production is excellent. 80 days. "
