If you love peach colors and fruity sweetness as much as we do, you’ll love the Sugar Rush Peach hot pepper! This was bred by Chris Fowler of Wales and was a (happy) accident through natural open-pollination of various varieties of Aji peppers. The pepper’s flavors are identical to an Aji Amarillo but sweeter and have an amazing citrusy, sugar-sweet flavor with notes of apricot and peach and some unexpected smoky, complex heat. You may also notice muted undertones of tropical-like fruit when eaten raw.

We estimate the heat level on this variety to be around 50,000 – 150,000 SHUs, which is close to a Habanero but hotter than a Chile Pequin. We recommend letting them grow to the fully ripened peach color as these hot peppers will without a doubt make the best hot sauces, salsas, and pepper jams. They are also great cooked, fresh, or pickled!

The slightly-wrinkled, long peppers grow to about three to six inches long, and the Sugar Rush Peach Pepper plant will grow over 5 feet tall which will likely need to be stalked. They will grow quite tall so be sure to give them space, and they are prolific and disease resistant. The Sugar Rush plant is so prolific that they will produce about 40 large peppers - very handy for making a ton of hot sauces!

Fun Fact: The Sugar Rush Peach Pepper may be the only peach-colored Aji type pepper out there!

Coty Shell

These peppers started awesome
In my indoor garden was curious if I should let 2 seeds go in one pot or remove the one that’s not doing as good?
