A mix of different colors of Scotch Bonnets. These extremely hot fruits (100,000-350,000 Scoville units) are 1000 times hotter than Jalapenos. Prized not only for their heat but for their fruity and smoky flavor. The seeds are not color coded.
Soil and Water: Peppers require deeply worked, well-drained soil with plenty of added organic matter and a pH of 6.0-6.8. Water deeply, but don't over water.
Planting and Growing: Start seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before the last frost. Stake to keep fruit off the ground and mulch for disease and weed control.
Harvesting and Storage: Harvest the first fruits early to encourage continued production through the season. Cut (don't pull) the fruit from the stems. Harvestable from the green stage through the color changes. Wash hands thoroughly or wear gloves when working with this fruit, as the capsaicin in the pepper is an extreme eye and skin irritant.
Did You Know? The heat of the chili is actually in the veins or membranes (surrounding the seeds), not from the seeds themselves.

Sow seeds indoors Â¼" deep. Peppers germinate best in warm soil, so gentle bottom heat may be helpful until seedlings emerge. Wait to transplant outdoors until soil is warm.
Pepper varieties come from tropical humid regions. The temperature, moisture, and air circulation all play a role in growing plants from seeds. Too little heat, too much moisture, and lack of air circulation will cause poor results. Do not use jiffy peat pots, plugs, or potting soil as the soil becomes too dry or too wet, which can lead to disease and fungus. We have experienced disease and low germination when using these types of products. Use Organic Seed Starting Material for best germination results.
Peppers often like to take their sweet time germinating. They can be up in a week, and some will take almost a month. Even with paper towel germination testing, they can take long. I am not sure why, but it is a normal occurrence. So plan and make sure you start them early enough! Also, remember they like heat to germinate so make sure you have a heating mat or something to keep the soil warm. Placing them up on top of the fridge often works too since it is normally warmer up there.
At Planting Time:
We plant all of our peppers with a good shovel full of compost in the planting hole, and then give them a good dose of compost tea every few weeks for the first 6 weeks of growth. We also mulch around each of our pepper plants with a good 1 to 2â³ thick layer of compost.
Growing Hot Peppers in Containers
Peppers can be grown all year long in containers. It is suitable for apartment dwellers and gardeners who live in cool regions where the number of growing days are limited. Many pepper enthusiast grow peppers in pots so they can have fresh peppers all year long. Itâs best to use 5 gallon containers so the roots do not get too over-crowded
Requires fertile soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.
Water well with soaker hoses during dry and hot spells.
Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Apply Miracle Gro every two weeks.
Harvest hot peppers when they are fully mature using a garden scissor so you don't damage the plant. Pick peppers as they mature to encourage new buds to form.
