Scotchbonnet Orange Hot Pepper

Our Hottest Pepper

  • Hotter than habaneros
  • 2 in., rounded orange fruits
  • Fruits mature from green to red
  • Up to 325,000 Scoville heat units
  • Favorite for Caribbean cuisine
Hot peppers are a favorite among gardeners and cooks-and this is one of our favorites. Scotchbonnet Orange bears plenty of small, 2 in. rounded fruits that combine a fiery heat with a touch of sweetness. Measuring up to 325,000 Scoville heat units, Scotchbonnet Orange Hot Peppers are hotter than habaneros-and add heat to salsas, chilis and Mexican recipes. It's the go-to hot pepper for Caribbean cuisine. Use fresh, make into hot sauce or dry for a hot powder. Fruits mature from green to orange when fully ripe. Start pepper seeds indoors and transplant plants to the garden after danger of frost has passed. 80 DAYS.
