So I was excited to grow Habanada peppers this year. These are bred from and look exactly like Habaneros (which will scare the dickens out of some people) but have nada of the heat. You're supposed to let them turn orange before picking to maximize the flavor, and they really take their time doing so. Picked my first ones today. Very nice! Amazing, really. Sweet and fruity. It's how a Habanero would taste if your mouth wasn't totally on fire. But the peppers are supposed to Scoville out with less heat even than a bell pepper and ... I detected a little heat in the aftertaste. Is that coming from seeds? Anyone else grow them?
