This variety comes from the jungles surrounding the Peten Lake area in Guatemala. Over 26 Mayan ruin sites are in this area so we
can assume this was a pepper cultivated and used by the Mayans when they existed. It has a nice sweet flavor and produces lots of
pods. It has average habanero heat. The Petenero chile plants can get over 3 feet tall.
At Refining Fire Chiles we isolate our seed production plants to avoid
cross-pollination with other chile species. If you want to try it yourself contact us for seeds, plants (March-August) and fresh chiles (September).
We also grow the Trinidad 7 Pot, Trinidad Scorpion, Naga Morich, Chocolate Habanero and many other Hot Chile Pepper plant
