Jamaican CHOCOLATE ,Scotch Bonnet ,Live Pepper Plant
Capsicum chinense, very hot.
Jamaica is almost as famous for its fiery Scotch bonnet peppers (which are rated as hotter than most habaneros) as it is for Reggae music and sports. Rarely will you find a Jamaican cooking without some of this pepper. Most often used on jerk chicken or pork, peppered shrimp, peppered steak and patties (a meat-filled pie), Scotch bonnet is the pepper of choice among Caribbean nationals. But for most visitors, especially those unfamiliar with this pungent chile, the strength of the Scotch bonnet is a shock.
Scotch Bonnet Pepper is widely used to season many different dishes and cuisines by Jamaican Chefs and households. Scotch bonnet peppers give Jerk Pork, Jerk Chicken and Jerk Fish their unique flavour.
Jamaican delicacies like curried goat, stews, soups, rice and peas and other everyday meals such as patties (a meat filled pie) and peppered shrimp: are all enhanced by the incredible flavour of Scotch bonnet peppers.
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 2″ 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. It’s best to use 5 gallon containers so the roots do not get too over-crowded
