The hefty Gator Jigsaw pepper has been rumored to be hotter than the Carolina Reaper, but that is yet to be determined officially. This super hot beast packs serious heat that you'll immediately notice – quick heat that peaks and then dissipates.

This pepper shares some characteristics of Pepper X, and is a relative of the Jigsaw pepper. Gator Jigsaw pepper plants can grow up to 4 ft tall and are very productive. The pepper ripens from green to yellow-mustard, with wrinkly skin and dimples.

You must be careful when consuming this extremely hot pepper! With heat levels estimated at around 1,500,000 SHUs, we recommend wearing protective gear such as latex gloves when harvesting and handling these peppers in the kitchen. Try growing this super hot pepper so you can make some tasty green hot sauces!

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.
