If you’re a lover of spicy food you’ve probably tried Habanero Hot Sauce. Habanero is an incredibly spicy sauce, as seen here on the Scoville Chile Heat Chart.
Habanero Hot Sauce is made out habanero peppers (shocking). Habaneros originate from the Amazonas region, and the first domesticated habanero was found during a Peruvian archaeological dig. After their discovery, habaneros quickly began spreading throughout Mexico.
Currently the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico is the largest producer of habanero peppers, and much of the Yucatecan cuisine revolves around the fruit. Habaneros are present in most of their dishes, both as whole peppers or as a salsa.
Outside of Texas, Idaho, and California, habanero peppers are mostly grown in South America. This is because the peppers need a hot climate to properly grow. They thrive when they receive enough morning sun and grow in a slightly acidic soil.
