Datil Pepper

         
 
3 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
(Capsicum chinense) 100 days. Blazing hot, blunt little 3.5-inch fruits ripen to a brilliant orange yellow. The heat is vicious, being comparable to habanero types, but the flavor is more complex, sweeter and more fruity. Renowned pepper originating from St. Augustine, Florida. Local legend says they were brought there from Spain, where they do enjoy a following in Minorca. However, they may also have originated in Chile.

What are the pros? Heat, complex flavor

What are the cons? none

Review:

I am getting rave reviews on my Datil Pepper Jelly and Datil Pepper Relish. Yes, right off the plant, these peppers ARE hot ones, but surprisingly, when used in canning they seem to lose about a third of their heat but none of the flavor. The Datil Pepper Relish Recipe is easy to find online, and for the pepper jelly, I followed the big Ball canning book's recipe for Jalapeno Jelly, but substituted half the jalapeno with datils. The plants are a bit slow to develop, but from what I've read, most people use them at the green, not orange, stage, so the wait is only long if you wait for them to change colors. Share your Jalapeno-Datil pepper jelly with others, just don't tell them your 'secret' ingredient!

What are the pros? Painfully hot. Great flavor

What are the cons? Low seed germination rate

Review:

Ate my first fully mature red datil this year and it was so hot I got a nosebleed; no exaggeration. Wow, the heat is surprising! Wonderfully productive plants once they get started, but hard to get germination yields. Ended up with only 4 seedlings to transfer this spring, but did they ever take root. I ended up with bushy healthy plants bursting with fruit. They are in 6 gallon planters in full sun. Very thirsty plants once they start to flower, so watch for that. Feed regularly to ensure fruiting once flowering starts. Used humic acid liquid food and the plants apparently needed that; will get loads of fruit to make salsa in about a week or two. Definitely a hot pepper to grow!
