Here’s some interesting information on the superhot Habanero chillies Piquante Red and Yellow developed by East-West Seed. These were posted earlier in this blog.
After harvesting the crop in a field trial in Los Baños, Ramil Panergayo gave some fruits to his favorite chef for testing. The chef liked it so much because it is great for his hot sauce. He immediately wanted a regular supply of the same. The two varieties have a special aroma and intense pungence that connoisseurs love, according to Ramil.
For his part, Ramil made his own Salsa concoction which consisted of just half one fruit of the Habanero, chopped onion, tomatoes, calamansi and soy sauce. It’s a super side dish for fried fish, grilled meat and others, he swears. Ramil removed the seeds because, he said, it would be very pungent for him if he included them.
In Mexico, Ramil said, the salsa is a must during most meals
