The Habanero pepper is a type of pepper named after the capital of Cuba, La Habana. Yet the pepper is most commonly cultivated in the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico. This is supposedly because Cubans from La Habana immigrated to Mexico and brought the peppers with them. Of all common peppers, Habanero peppers have the highest concentration of capsaicin (the substance that makes peppers spicy). Habanero has recently grown in popularity because of its fruity, citrus like flavor and floral aroma, perfect for hot sauces and spicy foods. Lime (also known as Persian lime) is an aromatic, tart citrus fruit popular in virtually all Latin American countries, in much of Asia and many other regions. Monin Habanero Lime combines the tantalizing heat of Habanero and the tartness of lime in one exquisite Sweet Heat flavor sensation: tart, sweet and spicy.
