Datil Habanero Pepper

(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. Minimum Seed Count: 15

Good to start from seed in these months:

North Florida: January-April, July-August

Central Florida: January-March, July-August

South Florida: January, August-December
