"Yucatan F1 is has a deep orange color, typical habanero shape. Our F1 hybrid habanero peppers display a deep colored skin and typical habanero shape that measure an average of 4-5 cm long. These peppers have high uniformity and are very aromatic & EXTREMELY hot. These Habaneros average 200,000 Scoville units and feature an intermediate resistance to Cucumber Mosaic Virus.We believe these F1 habanero hybrids are the best of their kind plus they adapt to most regions and cultivation conditions."
