White Bullet ®TM is an extremely hot white habanero variety from the Caribbean. The fruits are only 1" long and 1/2" wide and some say they are even hotter than either Red Savina or Chocolate Habanero. Very high yielding, a single plant may produce hundreds of fruits which turn an ivory-white when fully mature after approximately 100 days. Definitely worth trying, especially if you happen to enjoy the delightful sensation of having the back of your head blown off. Please note that White Bullet®TM is a Redwood City Seed Company, Redwood City, California USA is the owner of the Bullet trademarkand any seeds purchased MUST be for your own use.
