Yellow Lightning Habanero
“It feels like you’ve dipped your tongue in the deep fryer.”
Yellow Lightning Habanero is an amazing chinense variety. It looks stunning with heaps of lightning bolt shaped pods, that goes from a light green to a beautiful bright yellow, 5-6 cm long and about 2.5 cm wide.
The pods are hot and the heat can feel like a punch in the face. First you get nothing for about 30 seconds then WHACK – the heat comes all at once. Because of the sudden heat it feels like you’ve dipped your tongue in the deep fryer.
The plant grows 80 cm tall in a pot and likes a fair bit of shade. However, when the plant is podding up it thrives better in sunnier conditions. Because of this we recommend planting it in a pot, so the plant is easily moved around.
We recommend you try our variety seed packs for a GREAT discount.
