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!

Scotch Brain Strain Orange Pepper Seeds

Pleasantly Surprised

I received a pack of these seeds for free with my order. I planted them and they all germinated. They’re very productive and I’m currently harvesting a lot of them. When the plant was big enough to determine what mystery seeds I had been sent, I was a bit bummed to learn that they were Scotch Brain Strain Orange. I guess I was expecting something a bit more exotic, and these seemed a bit boring. But now that I’m harvesting them and have had a chance to taste them, they’re better than I thought they would be. Thin walled, fruity, and HOT! I’m trying some out in my dehydrator to make a seasoning powder, and a hot sauce! I’ll be growing these again!

This is my favorite pepper from Pepper Joe. All seeds germinated and the plant produced tons and tons of peppers late in the season. I will be growing these again this year. Great flavor for hot sauces, both for intensity of heat and for flavor, color is nice too.
