Sugar Rush Peach Hot Pepper

         
 
51 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
A sumptuous snacking pepper, Sugar Rush Peach is by far the most fun pepper to eat. The long, peach colored fruits are packed with loads of super sweet, tropical flavor, and the seeds bring a smokey, complex heat that when used together, creates a wild flavor experience unparalleled in any pepper we have tried. This exciting new open-pollinated variety was bred by hot pepper prodigy Chris Fowler of Wales. Chris credits this amazing variety as being a happy accident, courtesy of adventurous pollinating insects buzzing between various varieties of capsicum baccatum, or Aji Peppers. The result: super early, high yields of these exquisite sweet hot peppers.

What are the pros? Beautiful and prolific

What are the cons? Lost plants post germination

Review:

The fruit does not develop as deep an orange hue as illustrated in the image on this page and in the catalog, no matter how long it is left on the vine, so don't wait to match the color. Color is considerably paler. Most of my plants died about 5 or six weeks after germination, but the three or four that survived were healthy and robustly produced beautiful fruit. Four or five out of about 20 plants did not perish. I germinated the seeds indoors, in seedling medium, on a heating seedling mat. The flavor is fruity and lovely; the heat is intense but subsides quickly. It's the type of pepper heat that stings like needles on the tip of the tongue. I minced and froze the extra fruit, and happily, the flavor is sustained. The plants produced prolifically. I suggest staking the branches since a couple of my plants' branches broke off from the stem due to the weight of the fruit. I look forward to growing this lovely chili pepper again this year.

Review:

2018 was our first season trying out this pepper. I set the pepper transplants out a bit later then usual, so I didn’t expect much from them [especially the hot varieties]. Sugar Rush Peach outstood all the rest of our peppers. The plants were so prolific and the fruit is so beautiful. When it was time to taste them, again, I was impressed! Sweet and citrusy at first with a serious kick, unlike any other pepper we have ever grown here.

What are the pros? Attractive, flavorful

What are the cons? Spicier than expected

Review:

I grew these in 2018. They germinated easily and grew well, producing stocky plants with chartreuse coloured leaves that made for attractive visual interest among my peppers. Peppers in general like a bit of neglect, and these were no exception, even when grown in 3 gallon pots. The fruit took quite a while to fully ripen, but when it did they have a fantastic flavour; sweet and fruity and complex. They were much hotter than I expected for a "snacking" pepper - similar in head to a serrano, but this meant they made for a wonderful addition to homemade salsa. Definitely growing again

What are the pros? Fruity & Spicy combo

What are the cons? n/a

Review:

Grown in Mt. Airy, MD. No problems with germination, and the plants produced prolifically. A truly unique pepper - water-laden with a peachy fruity flavor followed by enough spice on the back-end so as not to be overwhelming or underwhelming. I was hooked after the first pod, and after its first year as an experiment I added it as a garden mainstay. I found these to be absolutely excellent in a refrigeration-pickled format with a bit of garlic. I also combined a few with a fresh peach in a blender to make an amazing summer salsa.

What are the pros? Prolific, tasty, nice heat

What are the cons? none

Review:

Planted a couple of these out of curiosity last year. Super producer and bushed out to a couple feet wide. They quickly became my favorite pickling and hot salad pepper, even over the Hungarian type. I like my peppers hot and these are tasty hot. Thinner walled than Hungarians, they retain their crunch just as well when pickled in vinegar with garlic and basil. Sublime flavor. I made many pints and ran out all too quickly.
