Details

Lemon Habaneros have a distinctive fruity and citrusy taste and, according to some, even an apricot-like aroma. Named after the city of La Havana in Cuba, these peppers are most likely to have originated in the Amazon region, although they are very popular in the Caribbean. The peppers are amazing in chicken, fish and seafood dishes. They also make a great relish or hot sauce. Non-Isolated.
