Scotch Bonnet Orange Pepper Seeds
Orange Scotch Bonnet - Heirloom
These attractive orange hot peppers have a surprising amount of heat and a wonderful aroma. Their unique taste is required for authentic jerk sauce. Jerk is a way of cooking that originated in Jamaica when meat is rubbed with a very sharp spice mixture called Jamaican Jerk spice. It is closely related to the habanero, but with a sweeter flavor and stouter shape.
The pods are 1-1/2" wide and 1-1/2" long and have a citrus-like flavor with a lot of heat. They have smooth waxy skin and four globular ridges at the bottom that aren't quite bonnet-like. The peppers mature from green to bright orange on very productive 24" tall plants. Capsiucum chinense (90 days)
~ Packet contains 10 seeds.
Heat Level: Extra Super Hot
Scoville Heat Units: 300,000
Capsiucum chinense strains require a great deal of attention during the germination process. Moisture and a constant and consistent heat range must be maintained. Place the seeds in sterile media and cover 1/4” deep. Provide 85°F bottom heat, bright light and keep moist at all times. Seeds will germinate in 7 - 21 days. Transplant seedlings into pots and grow until there are 6 true leaves on the plant. Plant them directly into rich soil, 30” apart or into containers.
All of our seeds are GMO-free.
