  • Scotch Bonnet Pepper


    Scotch Bonnet Yellow Pepper

    When I want pepper sauce for seasoning my meats, soups and most foods, I use Scotch Bonnet Peppers. For me, this variety makes the best, middle of the heat chain sauce. I also use it to temp down some of the hotter varieties. By combining them with varieties such as, Trinidad Scorpion, Ghosts and Carolina Reaper, my sauces are just right for seasoning or spreading over foods.  When making these hot sauces I mix 3 Scotch Bonetts to 1 super hot. That makes the heat and flavor perfect for me! Scotch Bonnets have a Scoville unit rating of 80,000 to 400,000. So they do pack some heat. On that same scale, Jalapeño have a score of 5,000, with Ghost peppers 1,041,427 and Carolina Reaper 1,641,000. So if you dont like super hot heat, this variety may be a good choice. Prolific plants.  Caution. If you are not used to chili peppers this one can be out of your league, so please be careful.

Alabama Red is a very flavorful okra. What I like also, is that they remain soft for a much longer time than many varieties. So you can get maximum use. These okras have a nutty flavor.
