Datil Pepper

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

Review:

This is a great variety of hot pepper. I originally planted it in a poor spot that was overshadowed by my tomatoes, so it took a little while to mature. I dug it from my raised bed and placed it in a fabric container, and it took off. I currently am still growing it inside under lights and it is still producing peppers 12 months after sprouting. The heat is big on these, up there (maybe even spicier) than habaneros. Love this pepper and looking forward to a second year of production.

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!

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.
