Datil Pepper

         
 
8 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 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!

What are the pros? Nice heat

What are the cons? Germination, production, vigor

Review:

The germination was very, VERY slow. I'd almost given up on getting any to grow at all. In the end the germination was about 20%. Half of the plants did not do well after transplanting into the garden. Unlike their jalapeno and pasilla peppers, never grew big nor produced well. I think I got 4-5 peppers off of 2 plants.

What are the pros? None

What are the cons? To long to produce

Review:

Planted early in the year, fed and watered it. Placed it in full sun, then shade cause the FL sun was stressing it. Took care of this plant and has just now produced one pepper. Started out with 3 plants and ended up with one. Bush grew tall and wide, looked nice. I'll keep over the winter and hope it does better next year.

Review:

Even though i live in the south and have grown peppers for many years, i was not aware of the Datil. I sure am glad that i decided to grow it this season. As like all my seeds that I purchased from Baker Creek this year, these also had a excellent germination rate with a heating pad. Plants took off after outside temps allowed and let me tell you, these things really put on the peppers, and they havent stopped. Its the end of July and they are still producing a lot of peppers. The pepper is sweet with medium heat, a hint of citrus which makes it very good with just about any dish. We eat them straight from the plant, but I have pickled some, dried and powdered some. You cant go wrong with this pepper, we really enjoy having it in our garden. The picture above is not correct for this pepper, it starts off green and turns a dark yellow to light orange when mature. Another very nice pepper to add to your garden.
