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.

Most times, orders having items with different shipping schedules are held in full until the entire order is ready to ship based on your grow zone.
