Fish Hot Chile Pepper

70-80 days. A rare, 1870's African-American heirloom, the Fish Chile Pepper is grown on ornamental, sprawling 2' bushes with variegated foliage and fruit. But then, surprise! The fruit matures to fiery orange-red with a burning hot Scoville ranking of 45,000-75,000 units. The Fish Pepper has often been used in its immature, white and green stage when it can be dried to retain its pale color (good for white cream or cheese sauces). Commonly held to be the secret ingredient by Chesapeake Bay fish houses, the Fish Chile Pepper is a special ingredient in seafood recipes as well as one gorgeous ornamental variety for the kitchen garden.
