Hot Pepper, Fish

Heirloom from the African-American community around Chesapeake Bay and likely introduced from Haitian immigrants after their independence from France in the early 1800s. Named after their use in hot sauces for seafood. Variegated foliage and fruits – peppers are often striped and go through a range of colors as they ripen. A fantastic edible ornamental and the hottest pepper we offer, roughly 2-5 times hotter than a jalapeño.
