Future Heat

These three are datil peppers. They are a very local pepper here in NE Florida. When the Spanish were in St. Augustine they had a lot of people from Minorca, an island in the Mediterranean just off Spain, working for them. These people brought datil seeds with them and planted them there. They flourished. The peppers are very hot, about habanero level but have a distinct smoky flavor that you won't confuse with any other pepper. This year I have 12 datils growing and 12 assorted hot peppers from Cross Creek Nurseries in NJ.

This year I won't run out!
