Originally from Peru, the Yellow Jelly Bean Habanero is a lovely & rare variety that is hard to come by. AKA Yellow Fire, Cumani, Charapita, Charapilla and Tet(t)inas de Monk chilli / chili / chile / pepper
The heat level of this chilli is very hot. Even if smaller than most of the habaneros, the Yellow Jelly Bean isn't less hot ! We rate it a 10++ just like other habaneros as it’s rated around 350,000 SHU.
The chilli pods go Yellow / Orange when mature and its shaped like a birds eye chilli hence sometimes confused with or called birds eye chilli….
The plant is very high yielding bushy pepper plant with the Yellow coloured pods. Small in size approximate 6 – 7 mm only. The plant will stay small between 30 – 45 cm high. Perfect to keep in a pot!
It will give you a lot of fruits during the chilli season, which lasts approximate 4 to 6 months depending on where you grow them and the weather conditions.

The plant itself grows rather vigorously, and with mine i tipped it many times throughout its growth. It spreads wide and thick, branching off with craploads of budding sites. A very easy and forgiving plant to grow.
Just ate the first yellow one off the tree and holy crap they pack a punch! A really sweet and lingering taste, with a feisty burn. They are rather small though so the heat doesnt spread so bad. Love them and will probably keep these as a permanent.
