Tucked behind a row of pole beans, our 2011 crop of red habanero grew nearly waist high. Bright red, wrinkled fruits are about 1-1/2 inches deep and 1 inch wide. The plants are loaded with scorching fruits that become red at maturity. The flesh of these peppers can be brewed into a full-flavored hot sauce with a smoky quality unique to the red habanero.
