Habaneros are known for their tropical flair – Caribbean sweet is their thing. So, too, for the Hot Paper Lantern, with a few distinct differences. It’s a tropical-sweet habanero-type pepper with even bigger heat than a common habanero. And where traditional habaneros perform best in warmer climates, the Hot Paper Lantern boasts a shorter growing season. This makes it a perfect habanero for cooler Northern climates where the growing season is shorter.
