Growing really hot peppers requires a combination of sun, soil and just the right amount of rain. Add a little TLC and you get a hot pepper that truly reaches it maximum level of spicy. Here in the upstate of South Carolina we have long sultry summer days, a garden that is supplimented with organic horse manure and just the right amount of rain, a formula that created a bumper crop this season.
How Hot is HOT? Really?
Hot Peppers- The Heat or spiciness of peppers is based on the content of Capsician. This component is thought to be useful to pepper plants as a deterrent against attack from certain mammals. Fortunately, some of the human race have developed a taste for the heat in peppers. Spicy foods are traditional in many cultures around the world.
The Scoville Heat Unit (SHU)- Humans, being competitive, have developed a numeric index to assign a level of spiciness or heat to peppers. The higher the number, the hotter the pepper. The garden variety Bell or Sweet pepper has a zero SHU, while the hottest peppers (Carolina Reaper, Pepper X, Dragon’s Breath are recent examples) have SHU numbers at or above 2 Million. The Jalapeño pepper comes in around 5,000 SHU.

Fatalii Peppers

New for us. A fried offered this wonderful hot pepper (125,000 – 400,000 SHU) that has an unusual and wonderful citrus flavor under the heat. These peppers were developed in Central Africa and are probably a cross breed of the Habañero pepper. Their spiciness is similar to the Hab. We will often add one to a pot of collards to infuse the full taste of the Fatalii’s citrus characteristic.
