Red Savina Habanero

The Red Savina Habanero is a strain of c. chinese developed from a mutant red pepper found in a field of orange Habaneros in 1989. It was found and developed by Frank Garcia, one of the 3 founders of GNS spices, which "owns" the Red Savina. The story goes that Frank was plowing under a large field of orange Habaneros rather then sell them at a much cheaper price then that which was negotiated for before planting. In the process of distorting the crop he spotted a plant with red fruit growing in the field. One red fruited plant among all these orange ones was rather odd and got his attention. He stopped the tractor, plucked up the plant and tossed it on the tractor and forgot about it for a while. The seeds from that single plant were grown, and through selective breeding, the Red Savina strain was developed. In 1994, the Red Savina set a world record for heat at 577,000 Scoville units.
