PEPPER (Capsicum chinense) (90-100 days)—

10 Seeds per pack

"Gifted to us from a great person, friend, pepper farmer in Jamaica, intellect, seed saver, and supporter of diversity. Jamaican Red Hot is a perfect balance of heat and citrus flavor. The peppers require a long season to properly mature in the Midwest, but the season needed has been decreasing the more we grow them here. Peppers size can approach the size of a small bell pepper. Ideal pepper for making hot sauce, pickling, and marinades! Grow 10 times more than you think because a bottle of hot sauce from these bad boys wont even get you into the fall, trust us." -Buffalo Seed Company
