Pacific NW vegetable gardeners often face the dilemma of when to harvest hot or sweet peppers, which need lots of sun, heat, and time to fully ripen. 'Habanero Red' pepper takes at least 100 days to fully ripen, i.e. turn red, but the fruit can be harvested green, often sacrificing the best flavor and maximum heat. Rated at a minimum of 100,000 Scoville heat units, one would hope that using these 'Habanero Red' peppers green would fulfill the requirement for heat, but the full, fruity flavor may be lacking. Harvesting green peppers encourages more fruit production, so there is an upside to picking these peppers while still green.
