Hot Portugal peppers have slowly made a comeback for both small gardeners and commercial growers alike. With its dependable and high-yielding growth, along with its appetizing flavors and moderate heat, no wonder why people love to grow them!

These plants may only grow up to 2 ft. tall, but they do hold sturdy. Hot Portugal peppers grow and mature earlier than others and can reach lengths of 6-7” long. These conical pods start off as a wrinkly dark green, but then ripen to a glossy, vivid red as if it was pumped back to life! Hot Portugal plants boast heavy yields of these peppers, so use as many as you’d like and store the rest away for later – no worries, they will last for a while!

The flavor is sweet like the Jimmy Nardello pepper, but its heat is what makes it different. The name “Hot Portugal” comes from its variable heat levels which can reach as high as 30,000 SHUs, or as hot as a Cayenne pepper! Use them for cooking, roasting, drying, and for sauce. If you can tolerate the heat, then you won’t regret adding these flavorful peppers to your food!
