    I've got this hot sauce (After Death Sauce) that has red and yellow habenero peppers in it. It's pretty hot stuff- but sooo good. I'm working on building up my tolerance.

    Whenever handling very hot peppers, you probably want to wear gloves to avoid getting pepper juice: under your fingernails, in cuts, in your eyes, etc.

    Love 'em.. a friend of mine has supposedly sourced out some kind of pepper that is (no joke) THREE TIMES hotter (900,00 on the Scoville rating system) so here's hoping- I only have 3 bushes of habaneros this year and I'm hoping they kick in sometime soon since they have been pretty non-fruitful so far

    Hmm, sounds like both of you guys have got some growing, eh? How easy are they to grow? I might give 'em a shot if environmental conditions here permit.

    I used to grow them in pots and overwintered them indoors. With that headstart, they ripened more peppers before the sun angle and temperatures got too low. But I began using my sunny indoor spaces for other things, such as Neps, and don't grow Habaneros anymore. I'd probably still start a couple plants every spring except that I don't have nearly enough room to start the tomatoes and other chiles I like more.

    Yum! Habaneros. Love the sting and the fruity notes.

    I've grown them too. I think they are very pretty. I don't have my veggie garden any more. I should have tried them in pots.

    I love hot stuff. Its an addiction, you know.

    I have them growing oustide in my yard. They grow pretty slow compared to other peppers. The plant I have is twice as hot as a regular Habanero. It's funny because I wouldnt dare eat those things so they just kinda sit on the plants. My cats avoid even touching the plant.

    The only time I ever got someone to eat it was when I (very carefully) grated a full peper and put it in my girlfriends omelet on April fools. She HATED me for the rest of the month. Its funny because she got half way done with the omelet before the heat really started. I even snapped a few pics of her running around the house screaming.
