Details

Roger’s series of giant habaneros are a strain of peppers created over 20 years of selection by Roger Torsythe. This one is the orange version, which was a bit smaller than some Roger has grown, but they were outstanding. The pods on these are just beautiful. They ripen so uniformly to this nice shade of light orange and are super glossy and just incredible looking. What was even better was the taste. They are very thick walled and a nice stout heavy pod. The filial generation of these is unknown and therefore must be considered unstable. Your grow results could vary from this description. Non-Isolated.
