(Hot Paper Lantern Pepper, Habanero Pepper for the North) Bright red, Chinese-lantern shaped peppers hang pendant from a sturdy, flat-topped bush. I have trouble growing standard Habaneros outdoors in my zone 6, but these grew readily and produced volumes of beautiful peppers. One caution, though, they are dangerously hot. I have a habit of testing seeds by pinching them between my front teeth, and when I did this with a hot paper lantern seed, I ended up crying in the field! Standard pepper culture.
