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)
