Criolla De Cocina looks kind of like a giant habanero (4" x 2"). It's a sweet pepper. I don't know if it tastes anything like one. It's supposed to have thin walls. I wonder if it's C. chinense or C. annuum (or a cross between the two). One reviewer says the flavor isn't as intense as that of a seasoning pepper.

I grew Trinidad Seasoning before. It was fun to grow, slow at first, then it took off. I grew it in containers. When I finally sampled the pepper, it wasn't hot, but the flavor was unusual. I hope you get lots of great peppers-if I remember I will ask how you like Trinidad Perfume.

I went with some friends today for Spring kick off of plant season and they had racks of Baker Hill and Johnny's seed. I looked over the Baker Hill seeds and found a pack of the Habanada seeds. I got few extra seeds too I could share with a couple of folks.

Default Habanada

Grew this pepper 2 years ago. Unbelievable production and a fruity sweet taste. Most branches snapped by end of season because of heavy fruit set.

Worth growing.

I grew these. Very productive pepper, with (yes) thin walls. I didn't get an intense flavor, just a nice sweet pepper.
