Dried Datil Pepper Flakes


The Datil Pepper is an exceptionally hot pepper, a variety of the species Capsicum chinense. Datil Peppers are similar in strength to habaneros but have a sweeter, fruitier flavor. Their level of spiciness may vary from 100,000 to 300,000 units on the Scoville scale.
Mature Datil peppers are about 3.5 in long and yellow-orange in color.

Datil peppers are cultivated throughout the United States and elsewhere, but the majority are produced in St. Augustine, Florida. Local lore suggests datil peppers were brought to St. Augustine by indentured workers from Minorca in the late 18th century.

The Datil pepper is almost identical to a west African pepper called the fatalii or "fatal"
