The Datil Pepper is Saint Augustine, Florida’s beloved local treasure and has been spicing up Florida since around the 1820s. It is a small, thin hot pepper that grows to 3.5 inches long and ripens to a yellow-orange color. You might have heard the Datil is similar in heat to the habanero, but Datil peppers are sweeter with a fruity, tangy flavor. Try making a fun Datil Pepper sauce with these peppers!
