Capsicum baccatum


Sugar Rush Red is the Ají pepper of our dreams. Red-ripe peppers are loaded with both heat and fruity flavor, but can be harvested at wax (yellow) stage for a milder experience. This pepper is slightly less hot than a habañero, ranking at roughly 80,000 to 150,000 Scoville heat units. This variety has consistently matured for us in northern climates, and can even take a couple of light frosts.


We recommend using this pepper in salsas and fermented hot sauces to highlight the unqiue flavor profile!


Packet size: 20 seeds
