This habanero plant is year 2 for this plant! We got this plant last year as a gift and kept it on a table near our window. The first year it had a handful of peppers. It survived all winter, but it looked pretty sad because it lost most of it's leaves. When spring came along we decided to plant it in the garden. To our amazement, it thrived! It grew so large, and we have habanero peppers growing again! These are really spicy, I have to be careful when I cook with these! I use them mostly in Jamaican beef patties, and in my first batch of pickles! I can't wait til these turn bright red! When the turn color, they become even hotter! Yum!
