Description

The Habanero, in the Netherlands also known as the Adjuma, is a spicy chilli. The Habanero has a tropical, fruity but also very hot taste which makes it a pepper that can be used in many dishes. ‘Habanero’ is Spanish for ‘from Havana’ and originates from Central America and the Caribbean. There they cook this pepper whole with it to take it out again later. The experienced user dares to add the pepper in the dish.

The Adjuma is sometimes confused with the Madame Jeanette, which we at Westlandpeppers also call Lemon Habanero. The two varieties are very similar, but the difference is that the yellow Adjuma pepper is spicier than the Madame Jeanette. And that the Madame Jeanette has a more fruity taste and strong citrus-like smell, hence the name Lemon Habanero.
