A cross between the Orange Scotch Bonnet and the 7 Pot Brain, the resulting Scotch Brain Strain Orange Pepper has an almost menacing texture that dares you to take a bite out of it. Although not quite as menacing as other super hot peppers, this variety still has a decent amount of heat with a plethora of great flavors.

These pepper plants will grow up to 2 ft. tall and produce good yields of these tiny pepper that grow between 1-2" long. Scotch Brain Strain Orange pods have a rounded shape and bumpy (almost boiling-like) texture similar to the brain-like look of the 7 Pot varieties. Ripening from green to its signature orange color at maturity

While not super hot, the Orange Scotch Brain Strain can still reach heat levels in excess of 300,000 SHUs - similar to hotter Habanero peppers. You'll enjoy a citrusy, tangy flavor with a little bit of floral bitterness when you bite into these pods. Try grinding these peppers into chili powder and sprinkle over grilled or smoked meats for a spicy, fruity flavor!

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.
