The Suave NuMex Orange chili was developed at the New Mexico State Univeristy to make it one of the mildest tasting habanero.  The absence of heat allows for the citrus, fruity notes of habaneros to be more prominent. Many people can enjoy this pepper without the searing heat of a regular habanero. The word “suave” means smooth or mild in Spanish, and that is descriptive of the mellow flavor this variety delivers.
