The Piquante Yellow is super hot, 3 times hotter than Red Hot, the current bestseller of East-West.
Piquante Red is a vigorous plant that produces lots of fruit.

Two new Habanero chilli varieties developed by East-West Seed are said to perform well under Philippine conditions both in the wet and dry seasons. This was learned from Ramil Panergayo, the companyโ€™s product and market combination manager.

These are the Piquante Red and the Piquante Yellow which are claimed to be three times hotter than the companyโ€™s current bestseller, Red Hot. These Habanero varieties produce bigger fruits than Red Hot. It takes only 100 to 120 fruits of the Habanero types to make a kilo whereas it takes more 600 fruits of Red Hot to make a kilo.

The Piquante Yellow has good leaf cover that protects the fruits from sun scalding.

The Piquante Red has a strong plant vigor and is considered early maturing at 75 to 85 days after transplanting. The fruits which are 4.5 x 3 cm are light green when immature but bright red when ripe. Aside from its pungency, it is also prized for its very high aroma that connoisseurs usually look for.

Piquante Yellow also has a strong plant vigor and good foliage cover that protects the fruits from sun scalding. Fruits are bright yellow when mature with high pungency and aroma. The fruit is 4.3 cm long and 3.3 cm wide.

Aside from being consumed fresh, the two varieties are good candidates for making hot sauces, powder and flakes.
The two varieties will be launched for commercial planting in East and West Africa next year, according to Panergayo. It is not yet known when they will be released for commercial planting in the Philippines

The Piquante Red is very red and very hot.
