Species: Chinense | Origin: New Mexico | Heat: Mild

This variety is from the smae family as the Habanero and was developed by the Chile Pepper Institute to have all the flavours of a Habanero but less heat. The word 'suave' is Spanish for mellow, smooth or mild. The pods have a citrus like flavour with an orange lemony overtone and an apricot aroma. The heat is in the back of the mouth and throat and not on the lips and tongue. Each plant can yield upto 100 mildly pungent fruits which rate at around 850 units on the scoville scale..
