Knowing when to harvest your habanero peppers will make all the difference in the world in regards to their flavor and spiciness level. In general, a pepper is ripe about 75-90 days after you planted it. It’s also a good idea to look at images of the ripe peppers and the seed packet information so that you know what a ripe habanero pepper looks like.
To harvest your peppers you’ll want to use either a sharp knife or your garden clippers to snip the pepper off the plant. You will probably also want to wear gloves while doing this to protect your hands, or even worse if you rub your eyes. Once you’re done you should thoroughly wash your hands even if you wore gloves.
For those that don’t want to grow their own peppers, an entrepreneur called Joel Friant launched a product called Habanero Shaker. Each container is guaranteed to have 100% Habanero flakes only. Joel Friant had launched the Habenero Shaker in 1995 and, while it was gone from the market for a number of years, he relaunched the Habanero Shaker due to popular demand for it.
As Joel Friant points out, the habanero pepper is the most pepper with the most flavor. It has a buttery and smoky taste that most people love to taste. As is also very well known about habanero peppers, they are one of the hottest chili peppers around.
Since Joel Friant launched Habanero Shaker in 1995 there have been other, hotter shakers that have been introduced onto the market featuring peppers even hotter than a habanero. However, he says that the combination of heat and flavor is unbeatable when it comes to a habanero. Even though they’re not the absolute hottest you can buy they are still really hot, but not to the point where the heat is unbearable. The heat and the flavor combined make a mix that is irresistible.
