Can you take the heat? If you love the eye-tearing experience and flavor of hot peppers, add habanero peppers to your garden. With fruit that’s 100 times hotter than jalapeños, Habanero peppers pack a punch—they’re not for unadventurous palates. The plant produces loads of wrinkled, 1 to 2-inch peppers that mature from green to orange. Use them in chili, hot sauce, fiery salsa, spicy pepper jam—any recipe that needs a boost of heat. Plant produces well, even in hot summer temperatures. Grows beautifully in garden beds or containers. Although the plant is compact, adding a cage at planting will help support stems when heavy with fruit. Place in full sun, and feed regularly. Scoville heat units: 100,000 to 300,000. Matures in 95 days. Read More

Welcome your Plant

1. Remove Packaging

Take each individual bonnie plant out of the box before carefully opening each individual plant’s packaging. Be cautious of soil that may have shifted during transportation.

2. Check the Soil

Your plants were watered right before shipping, but they may have become thirsty during travel. If the soil is dry to the touch, give your plants a good drink before planting.

3. Adjustment Period

Let your plants get used to their new environment. Set them in a warm, sunny spot for 34 to 48 hours so they can recover from their trip before being planted.

Long term Care

1. Location, location

Find the right spot for your plant. Check each plant’s tag for information on how much sun your plan’s need. Growing tip: if your plant needs full sun, a south-facing area will give you the most sunlight. If your plan can grow in part shade, an east or west-facing window might be enough.

2. Soil & drainage

Making sure your container has holes to allow excess water to drain is vital to your plant’s health! We recommend planting your Bonnie Plant in Miracle-Gro Potting Mix for containers, or Miracle-Gro Garden Soil for planting in ground.

3. Hungry plants

Feeding your plants is one of the best ways to improve your plant’s health and maximize your harvest. We recommend feeding with Miracle-Gro plant food when you transplant, and feeding regularly following label directions for best results.
