Datil Pepper

         
 
11 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.

Review:

I apparently had good luck on growing these for the first time. I planted 3 seeds and all 3 sprouted in 2 weeks. They were planted in a small greenhouse I bought the last week of October of 2015 and I finally planted them outside beginning of June. I had to top them off 3 times while inside and when outside, they grew to be 4 1/2' tall and were heavy producers. They are great in salsa, bbq sauce, spaghetti sauce, Alfredo sauce, etc. They also go great diced up in a grilled hamburger, German fries... basically anything except for ice cream & birthday cake. I hoarded several in a freezer to make sauces over the Winter. Good stuff!

What are the pros? Easy maintenance

What are the cons? Start slow

Review:

Planted about 12 of these, they all germinated and grew. Once they are up and running they are mighty hardy plants. Currently haven't watered them in two months and they have per plant put out 30-40 peppers a week. Ridiculously prolific, just not very precocious. Give them time and they'll take off.

What are the pros? VERY HOT and great flavor

What are the cons? Hard to grow

Review:

Ok, so these are particularly hard to grow peppers. The first year, none of the plants produced. All the plants we kept in the green house and outside, died. We kept one indoors and that one lived. We placed it in the greenhouse in year 2 in early-mid spring and then planted outside once we knew the last frost came. It produced about 20 peppers of sizes ranging from 1.5-3 inches. Taking care to taste and separate a few, I found some were much like a jalape?o, a couple similar to a tobacco, and one with virtually no heat. I am assuming that those were ones that cross pollinated with other peppers we had growing. Having said that, I had a couple that were warm for about 2 seconds and then sent me running for some milk and crackers coughing all the way (Holy crap hot). So, I will be saving THOSE seeds as I believe them to be a true datil. It might have taken 2 years to grow because we live in the Pacific North West which is not known for hot climates or humidity. This is just my opinion

Review:

I started these indoors in January with my tomatoes and other peppers. Set them out in March. They were the slowest of my peppers to germinate and took a while to get going in the garden. But, holy cow, once the weather warmed up, they took off like crazy. They loved the hot, humid summer here in Houston and outlasted all my other pepper varieties. Not a single issue with insects or disease. It's now early December (daytime temps in the 60's) and these hardy plants are still setting a ton of fruit. Once a week or so, I harvest a big bowl of ripe peppers. And, they are delicious! Very hot but with a sweetness underneath the burn that's unlike any other peppers I know. I've been fermenting them for a really great hot sauce. Next year I'll only plant one of these guys for sure-- unless these plants end up being healthy perennials. Highly recommended for anyone in a similar climate.

What are the pros? Very good producer

What are the cons? Not very hot

Review:

I have grown this pepper for two seasons. I love the unique flavor, plentiful pods and ease of growing. I was a little take back at first, as I was expecting scorching heat, but I was surprised to find it produced very little heat at all. Overall, I will continue growing this pod, for the flavor it adds to my sauces. Happy gardening!
