South Carolina pepper breeder Kevin Bane has been working on 'Flavor Savor White' for years, trying to create a fruity, white habanero with relatively mild heat. He's happy to report that these are a success. The heat is milder, somewhere between a Jalapeño and Habanero. The flavor is intense and super fruity, almost tropical.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Kevin is an experimental pepper grower and typically grows most his peppers in the same field with little isolation distance. This allows the possibility for a small percentage of his seed (2-3%) of any given "cultivar" or "breeding population" to be crossed up. We are comfortable with this possibility. Mostly the cultivars are very stable. And also, given EFN's propensity for selling experimental grex and genetically diverse populations, we don't expect this deter most our customers.
