The Scientific Research Center of Yucatan (CICY), thanks to its research and experimentation work, obtained the breeder’s title for one of its registered varieties of habanero pepper (Capsicum chinense): “Kisin”.
Engineer Eduardo Balam Uc, responsible for the Seed Production Unit of the CICY, explained that a breeder’s title, in terms of agriculture, is the equivalent of a patent for a technological development or invention, and provides for the granting of intellectual rights property to the person or company that contributed to the generation of a certain project or theory.
Dr. Nancy Santana Buzzy, a researcher at the Unit of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of Plants of the CICY, was in charge of the project, together with the M.C. Adriana Canto Flick and Dr. Susana Alejandra Avilés Viña, conducted the research and experimentation work, to select, validate and register this variety of habanero pepper and obtain the title, that is recognized by the National Service of Inspection and Certification of Seeds (Servicio Nacional de Inspección y Certificación de Semillas: SNICS).
“The breeder’s title gives the CICY the possibility of exploiting the rights of this variety of Habanero pepper that has been named “Kisin”, for 18 years, as it is marked by the Federal Law of Plant Varieties.”
This variety is characterized by having a red fruit when it is ripe and a greenish color when it is immature; with a weight of 13.81 g and three to four locules; its main feature is that it is very spicy (670 325 on the Scoville scale).
