Wanting to fool people that you’re growing the hottest habaneros? Prank your friends and family by growing the Tobago Seasoning pepper seeds!
The Tobago pepper is traditionally used in Caribbean cooking as it has a habanero fruity flavor, but without the added heat. With a heat level of 500 SHUs, this is milder than the Jalapeno! The peppers will grow to 2 inches long and will develop blocky, wrinkled, lantern shapes. You will not be disappointed with their flavor as it is a sweet, almost smoky pepper that tastes of fruity tropical. And don’t get us started on their aroma because it is one of the best amazing smells we have smelled in our lives when cooking them! The Tobago Seasoning pepper plant will grow to 3 feet tall, and the pods will ripen from green, orange, to finally a striking red color. Although these peppers are traditionally used as a jerk sauce in the Caribbean, you can make and cook many things with these pods such as sauces, fresh salsa, soups, stews, salads, and seasoning.
Fun Fact: This is also known as the Trinidad Seasoning pepper, but the Trinidad Pimento pepper is also called that as well. They are very different in flavor, and the Trinidad Pimento is longer and elongated.
