Hailing from St. Augustine, Florida, the Yellow Datil pepper has been a regional treasure since the 1820s with a gorgeous yellow color and impressive flavors that you’ll never get over.

Grow these compact pepper plants in your garden or in any container - they work great! Plants will reach between 2-3 ft. tall and produce great yields of these 3" long pods. The Datil Yellow Peppers get their color after ripening from green to their yellow-orange color at maturity.

The Datil Yellow has heat levels averaging around 100,000-300,000 SHUs, which is similar in heat to the Habanero, Fatalii, or Scotch Bonnet peppers. It has a uniquely sweet flavor once you're able to get past the heat. These peppers are perfect to spice up any cuisine, used fresh in salads, sauces, or hot sauces, or dried into a fantastic chili powder!

Getting Started

So, you've received your seeds and are wondering what's next? At Pepper Joe's, we're committed to equipping you with everything you need to succeed in germinating the pepper seeds you've chosen. Our mission is to introduce you to a diverse array of pepper varieties, setting the stage for an exciting and rewarding gardening experience. Let's dive into the essentials together.

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
