Adventures of the Habanero

By: on 6 May 2016
This thing was indestructible. I grew it up on a sunny second story balcony. It was growing beautiful and was already loaded with unripe fruit when I went on holidays. It dried out a bit and on an especially windy day, it got blown off below and came completely out of its pot. My neighbour found it like this some hours later and repotted it for me. It survived despite a number of broken branches and kept on giving. It was incredibly prolific. It produced well over 100 chillis. It's now May in Canberra and, although there isn't time, it's still putting out blossoms and otherwise loaded with ripe fruit. It's a beautiful looking bush too, especially when loaded with fruit. I know there are exotic superhot cultivars but even these are pretty damn hot. One pod replaces three or four birdseye chillis. The flavour is different, fruitier - and the heat longer lasting. I used it to make hot sauce too. It was very fun to grow and I'll grow it again, but might try a different variety next year like the Chocolate.
