It was supposed to be a Carribean habanero. Any ideas?

Any photos of the flower? That looks a lot like one of the low heat baccatum varieties. Bishops Crown or similar type. A flower pic would help confirm the species. But the pod really looks like a baccatum to me.

Definitely not a habanero and I would agree with Black Fatalli that it's a Bishops Crown.

 

My first season I got what I thought were red habs that turned out to be Bishops Crown. Where did you get your seeds?

 

Bishops Crown is very mild and tasty (mine had no heat, like a bell pepper) and were good sliced up and put on salads.

I got them through Baker Creek Seeds.

100% Baccatum, most likely Baccatum is bishops crown which is one tasty snacking pepper. But it looks like Bakers Creek doesnt not have Bishops crown in their seed index.

Yes, what you have is a baccatum variety for sure. The flower is a dead giveaway. On the bright side, many baccatums have really great flavor. Just don't expect it to be anywhere near habanero heat levels.
