Wanting to fool people that you’re growing the hottest habaneros? Prank your friends and family by growing the Tobago Seasoning pepper seeds! Also known as the Trinidad Seasoning pepper, these pepper look and taste similar to habanero varieties, but they will definitely surprise you with their mild heat!

The Tobago Seasoning pepper plant will grow to 3 feet tall, producing multi-colored 2" long pods that change colors from green to orange, to finally a striking red color. These pods have a blocky lantern shape with a wrinkly texture.

With a heat level of 500 SHUs, this is even milder than the Jalapeno! You will not be disappointed with their flavor as it is a sweet, almost smoky pepper that tastes 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! 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.

Tough to grow

I ordered a pack in Oct 2021, out of the entire pack, I only got two small germinated sprouts, which then died after about a week. Got a replacement seed pack in Feb 2022, tried germinating more, and none ever germinated. This despite a dozen or so other seeds germinating and new plants growing healthily alongside the empty Tobago pot that were planted at the same time. Seeds were planted in a very controlled temperature, humidity and closely monitored environment. I followed all of the guidance that PJ customer support provided (again, I have no problem growing pepper plants from seeds--I'm successfully doing it with other seeds from PJ's). I'm not sure why these seeds struggled to germinate and survive. I'll stick with other varieties for now--maybe I'll try again next year.

Key to great West Indian cooking.

All the flavor without the heat needed for real Caribbean dishes.

Very low germination rate

Using a heat mat- as I do with all my pepper seeds- I was only able to get two of the tobago seeds to germinate out of about thirty that I tried. Glad I was able to get any started as this is one of my favorite peppers, but I obviously would've liked to have had more success germinating them. Normally I'd gift a few seedlings and grow many more plants myself.
