EXCLUSIVE - Bred exclusively by Frank Garcia at GNS Spices, incendiary Red Savina is the hottest habanero known, tipping the scale at 380,000 to 500,000 Scoville units which put it in the Guinness Book of World Records. Along with brilliant red color and intense heat, Red Savina's flesh has that special tantalizing fiery fruitiness that characterizes habanero chiles from the Yucatán. The Chinese lantern-shaped fruits grow on sturdy 3 to 3 1/2 foot plants that do best in long hot summer areas.

STARTING SEEDLINGS

In early spring, start indoors about 2 months before night temperatures stay reliably 50 to 55°. Sow seeds 1/4 inch deep and 1 inch apart in a container of seed starting mix. Keep moist but not soggy, and very warm (80 to 85°). Provide a strong light source. When seedlings are 2 inches tall, transplant 2 to 3 inches apart into deeper containers. Maintain at 70 to 75°. Feed with half-strength fertilizer every 2 weeks until weather is warm enough to gradually acclimate seedlings to outdoor conditions. Transplant 2 feet apart into rich, well amended soil in full sun.


GROWING NOTES

Habaneros need warm conditions. Don't transplant outdoors until night temperatures stay securely above 55°. Prepare soil well with aged manure or compost. Plant only robust seedlings with well-developed roots. Mulch plants to maintain even soil moisture. Keep well weeded, watered and fertilize regularly, about every two weeks throughout the growing season. Chiles will be hottest grown in hot summer areas.


HARVEST AND USE

Important: Wear eye protection and gloves whenever you are handling fiery hot chiles. Enjoy Red Savina's marvelous fruity heat in salsas (especially combined with fruits), soups, jerk rubs and marinades. One chile will season a whole pot!
