Marie Sharp's heirloom habanero's have been stunning culinary aficionados, like yourself, since 1981. It takes many years to produce a new pepper cultivar. Marie has spent this time creating her hottest pepper, to date. A little less than a year ago after seven generations of planting, she announced to us personally, "I have a new sauce, from my new pepper, and it packs a sting boy!" The rest, as they say, is history, and the Red Hornet has landed.

When she started experimenting with flavors in her kitchen more than 40 years ago, Marie Sharp wasn’t setting out to influence the international hot-sauce scene. She was just a middle-aged woman who was obsessed with making a high-quality habanero/carrot sauce blend from her farm’s fresh fruits and vegetables.

But, Marie’s knack for creating fresh and exciting flavor combinations was such a hit with family and friends that she started selling her product and soon hired an employee. As word of Marie’s hot sauce continued to spread, American tourists vacationing in Belize started smuggling it back in their suitcases.

A woman-owned business, Marie Sharp’s farm currently employs about two dozen workers, with 85% of her workforce being female. At age 81, Marie proudly relishes her status as “Queen of Habanero” — in Belize, and in kitchens around the world.
