I have a Habanero pepper plant, and the fruit are a very pale orange and a very light tan color, almost white. Could you tell me what kind this is, and how spicy?

Habanero peppers top the scale in heat units! There are varieties called 'Scotch Bonnet' that come in various colors, but all with the same degree of heat (150,000 - 350,000 heat units). Your pepper may be the 'Scotch Bonnet Yellow'.
