Peppers (Hot)

Wow! I am a “chicken” when it comes to these real hot “babes”…BUT I hear there are many very brave (or silly…) souls out there that will try almost any super hot pepper! Did you know that Police grade “pepper spray” is rated @ 5,300,000 SHU? Did you also know that pure “capsaicin” is rated @ 15-16,000,000 SHU? AND…common “pepper spray” is rated @ 2-3,000,000 SHU. Some of the HOT pepper varieties we are offering come (close) to these rates.

Super Hot Peppers need a much longer growing season and therefore need to be started in the beginning of February. If you are starting (regular pepper ) plants for yourself, March 15th would be a suggested day to start. Germ. temps should be no less than 80F/27C. Use soiless mixes to eliminate the chance of soil born spores that could cause stem rot. A small fan running on slow speed near (but not on the soil surface…) of freshly seeded plants will reduce future problems in germination and growing on. Do not over seed in small pots or cells, as this causes the whole mass to elongate too early, causing weak stems. As soon as the “plantlets” have a “true” 1st leaf, transplant and place in a cooler growing temperature. Super hot pepper varieties perform better in warmer growing temps, as they are very slow growers. These should be started in February.

Will remain online for educational purposes. Operating on a “Hobby” basis.

  87. Rachel – Sourced for me by my friend Micki. Here is a pepper that loves the heat & puts on the “HEAT”! A prolific little chili…1″ X 2.5″ (or less)…”chubby” on huge plants, capable of growing to 3.5 or even 4 feet tall! (unheard of in the “pepper” world!) Fruits are very mild to medium hot, when pale green and then become very hot when red! Thanks Mic for this one!
  88. Rezha Macedonian – A traditional Macedonian pepper type for that region. Altho I’ve never seen it before. Fruits are rare and beautiful at the same time, elongated like gorgeous horns of plenty, reaching over 8″ long and 2″ wide or more. Then suddenly these blistering cracks appears encircling the fruits in fine lines all the way from bottom to top! Heat said to range from mild to pungent!     Pkt…$4.00
  89. Riot – developed by Dr. Jim Baggett of Oregon. Classified as an ornamental yet edible. Colorful 2”-3” long narrow hot peppers erupt into a riot of color on top of short compact plants, all stages of green, yellow, orange and red. Looks like a Fire! 65 days
  90. Rocotillo –  Originally known to be from Puerto Rico, not Peru. Seeds from this variety are the normal white unlike the “Rocoto Red“. Shaped much like the “Mushroom Red Cap” (Tam-O-Shanters). Only smaller and more prolific.     
  91. Rocoto Red – From the highlands of Peru. Very rare! This one actually enjoys not only a long growing season, but prefers cooler growing temperatures. Beautiful purple flowers, followed by 1″ round green fruits. These small peppers, are shaped like a little red apple (when mature) and start out yellow, orange, red or lemon yellow. This “capsicum pubescens” type has fuzzy leaves and the only one of its kind to produce black seeds! Quite hot. One of the most unique pepper varieties we have ever offered. Best grown in pots! 95 -120 days!
  92. Royal Black – the most beautiful black pepper plant ever offered! Compact 2 ft with deep purple black foliage, dark stems, purple flowers and jet black tiny piquin-type fruits. Striking especially in the landscape! Peppers will eventually turn red. Very edible and very, very hot. (Even to hold). The best black plant for your collection of unique Blacks!
  93. Santa Fe Grande – (aka Caribe) A beautiful jalapeno pepper that is 3” long and 1 ¼” wide, tapering to a point. Resembling a chubby mini banana pepper. Scoville units of 5000 to 8000. Thick-walled, best for pickling or frying. Starts out green, yellow, which it holds for some time, eventually turning to red. A Mexican favorite, boasts fruit twice the size and 2-3 weeks earlier than the original. 64-67 days
  94. Satan’s Kiss – (aka Ciliegia Picante, aka Baccio di Satana) An Italian heirloom pepper. Fruits are cherry like in shape, about an 1 1/2″ in diameter. Gosh awful name for a vegetable! Has moderate amount of heat when raw and reduces by 60% when roasted or cooked! Traditionally stuffed with anchovies and mozzarella before being grilled. Something like the “Cherry Bomb“. A chile variety that is easy to grow and is highly productive.
  95. Scotch Bonnet – a capsicum chinense, similar to habaneros although maturing much later. 2 ½” x 1 ½” start green, then becoming vibrant scarlet red! Fruity aroma with same blistering heat of the best habaneros. 36” T. Start early & keep very warm, fed and watered. ( for pots!) 120 days.
  96. Scotch Bonnet Yellow – description as above, only in pale yellow and slightly larger. A slow growing variety as many of its kind, maturing in 2 years to small “trees” Best for pots.
  97. Scorpion Tongue – Capsicum annuum. A very rare, yet becoming quickly popular variety, that has a unique squarish, tongue-like shape. There is a lot of debate over the family it is to belong to…confusion with maybe the “Black Scorpion Tongue”? Seems these look quite different one from another. Any how’s…am told, is a moderately hot pepper with winkled skin at any of its stages of yellow to orange to red. Fruits are small to medium and plants offer have high production. 85 days
  98. Serrano – One of the most popular varieties since the beginning of time! Thick walled and pointy with moderate heat.    Pkt…$3.00
  99. Serrano Tampequino – Back by request. Another favorite of Mexican kitchen cuisine. Semi-slender (1″) fruits are slightly curved and grow to 4″ long. Flavorful heat is a pleasant 2500 to 4000 SHU. Very productive plants offering fruits with excellent taste.
  100. Stavros Pepperoncini – My friend Tammy C. was really impressed by this pepperoni type for its production, as was I. This Greek heirloom produces shiny light green square shouldered fruits, 5-6″ long by 2-3″ wide, with thin skins. One plant can produce up to 5 lbs of fruits, often reaching 18″ to 36″ tall. One you should have in your collection if you are planning to do lots of pickling especially.    Pkt…$3.00
  101. Sugar Rush Peach – Here is a little one looking for all the world like a fierce wavy elongated Super Hot, bearing complex heat, accented with a super sweet, tropical and smokey flavor to it! Fruits are quite pretty ranging some soft pastel peach to medium light orange…from 3′ long x 1″ wide.
  102. Tepin –  (aka Bird Pepper) Do not let it’s size fool you! The tiny round fruits are the size of peas. EXTREMELY HOT! The sensation reportedly disappears rapidly. Plants are very productive, growing wild in many parts of the southern US. 90 days   
  103. Thai Dragon – Found this variety instead of the “Peter Pepper” I was hoping for. None the less it is interesting, as it forms elongated upright slender green (eventually maturing to deep red) pods, in clusters of at least 6 to 9, upright on modest short plant. Its leaves also appear just beneath, like they were holding an important bouquet! The heat, as I discovered once when rubbing the outside corner of my eye…was unforgivable! Hot!   
  104. Tri – Fetti – Was offered by the Green House, but not posted to the web. Here is a medium hot pepper that has all the makings of a show piece in your flower garden. Larger “bush” type plants offer…deep purple, green and white foliage. Large deep purple/violet flowers produce 1″ x 1/2″ pendulous purple conical fruits that turn red when ripe. To see one is to be wowed!

(This Greenhouse will not be held responsible to customers in any regard for the mishandling and consequences of this variety. Buyer Beware!) 100 to 120 days
  107. Trinidad Scorpion Moruga – The hunt is always on! What “other” HOT pepper variety is out there (either created or selected) And finally it has arrived! As of 2012…we have a celebrity in our midst! The “Moruga” variant is now considered as having the highest SHU rating of from 600,000 to 2,000,000 SHU! Double WOW! Originally from the Caribbean, it bears pendulous pods of a tear-drop shape. As will all in its class, fruits ripen to a deep red. All parts are considered lethal weapons! Please take the greatest care! 100 to 120 days
  108. Uba Tuba – (aka Christmas Bell) Originated from Brazil. Named after the cities of Ubatuba & Cambreci. According to some, believed to have been taken to Europe by the Portuguese in the 1800’s from S. America. Looks like “Bishop’s Crown“, but with less heat~5000. Sooo unusual, fruits bearing 3 to 4 semi-pendulous “wings” (…like a flared bell ) Flesh is very thin. Body offers the greatest heat and the “wings” are mild and sweet. Plants can grow from 3 to 4 feet tall and bear from 30 to 50 “pods”. A rare chile. 90 100 days for first fruits.
