Once considered to be the hottest chili pepper, the habanero has been surpassed by other hot varieties, but it is nonetheless hotter than most commonly available cultivars. The habanero has a subtle, fruity flavor and a floral aroma. It is closely related to many other very hot peppers. Disseminated to China over 500 years ago by Spanish and Portuguese explorers, it became so much a part of Chinese cuisine, botanists who found it in China thought it was native to the area and thus named this species Capsicum chinense, based on the habaneros from China.

Peppers from Asia are renowned for their distinct and diverse flavors, heat levels, and versatility in cooking. From the sweet bell peppers of China to the fiery Thai bird's eye chili, Asian peppers are an essential ingredient in many of the region's most popular dishes. Asian cuisine often features a balance of sweet, sour, salty, and spicy flavors, with peppers playing a key role in achieving this balance. Some Asian peppers, such as the Sichuan pepper, are prized for their unique numbing effect, which adds an extra dimension to dishes.

Additionally, the use of peppers in Asian cuisine has a long history, with some varieties being used for both culinary and medicinal purposes for thousands of years. The intricate flavor profiles and rich cultural significance of Asian peppers make them truly special and sought after by food lovers and culinary enthusiasts.
