Jamaican Scotch Bonnet Hot Pepper
An heirloom treasure from Jamaica, this pepper is fruity and full bodied, providing the backbone of countless Caribbean delicacies. Named for the unique shaped fruits which resemble famous “tam o shanter” Scottish hat. Our Jamaican scotch bonnets are produced by our resident horticulturist and pepper lover, Richie Ramsay, at his farm in Jamaica. He tells us that it is critical for the vinegar sauce in Jamaican Escovitch (escabeche). The thick walls of the pepper are well suited to long cooking times for making jerks and curries. We are grateful to Richie for introducing this select strain of Jamaican scotch pepper.
