Red Habanero - These can be twice as spicy as the common orange habanero, so use caution as you enjoy the incredible warmth and rich, smoky-citrus taste of these lantern-shaped 2-inch fruit.

Jalapeño - Pods are 3.5 inches long by 1.5 inches wide at shoulder, tapering to a blunt tip, cylindrical, thick walls, smooth, with well filled seed cavity. Dark olive green fruit turning red at maturity. Plants are upright, 26-36 inches tall, with pendant fruit. Produces continuous yields of peppers.

Serrano - Said to be one of the hottest peppers available. Abundant small fruits ripen from dark green to deep crimson. Excellent for making pepper sauce and hot chili sauce.

Tabasco - The Tabasco pepper is a variety of chile pepper best known through its use in Tabasco sauce. The tapered fruits, around 4 cm long, are initially pale yellowish-green and turn yellow and orange before ripening to bright red.

Thai Hot - The Southeast Asian peppers, known as “bird’s eye” peppers or chili padi, are small and hot. They aren’t as scorching as the very hottest peppers but they’re hot enough to require some care in handling. The peppers are slightly curvy and end in a point. They change color from green to red as they ripen.

Yellow Wax - Yellow wax peppers are technically a hot pepper, though they contain so little capsaicin that they can be eaten the same way as one would an apple. They are delicious raw and work very well in light salsas.
