Habanero and other peppers

I found many kind of peppers when I visit Mexican and Asian groceries couple days ago, few are:
- Habanero
- Jalapeno
- Poplano
- Pasilla
- Puya
- Serrano

Habanero is interesting hot pepper for me. First, its origin. Many people thought it is a Chinese pepper. Malaysian even called it as “Coronong” chilli.

In fact, Habanero is origin from Peru, then disseminated by Spanish to many parts of the world.

Second, it is said that Habenero is one of the hottest pepper in the world. Several other hot peppers include:
- Caroline reaper
- Trinidad moruga scorpion
- Naga viper
- Ghost pepper
- Komodo dragon

Habanero in a grocery

The hot or heat or spiciness of peppers is scaled in what we call as Scorville Heat Units (SHU). This unit is based on concentration of capsaicinoids in the peppers.

The higher the concentration of capsaicinoids, then the higher the scale units, thus, the higher spiciness or hit or hot. We can feel it in our tongue when we taste or eat those peppers.

Jus for illustration that Habanero has 100 thousand to 350 thousand SHU scale, and Jalapeno has around 5 thousand SHU scale.

We could conclude that Habanero is much more spicy or hot or heat compared to Jalapeno.

We buy Habanero for making sauces or ingredient in our food recipes. Sometimes, we use it to make salsa or salads.

It is said that Habanero has health benefits:
- Capcaisin in habanero could prevent weight gain
- Improve metabolism
- Lower blood cholesterol
- Lower blood pressure

  10. Habaneros are crazy hot! We love heat in our house but stick with the much more tame jalapenos!

  14. Habenero is a quantum leap in heat from jalapeno. I really enjoy hot, spicy foods, but whether I have ever had a super hot habenero I am not sure. I recently had a hot, spicy dish in Panama that challenged my taste buds!
