Hellapeño - Seeds

Hellapeño - (Capsicum Annuum)

The Hellapeno is one of the hotter Jalapeno varieties we have ever tried.  They are miniature Jalapeno type peppers that get about 1.5 to 2 inches in length and a half inch wide.  Very thick walled and juicy.  They start off green and ripen to a dark purple and then finally to a deep blood red.  Their flavor is amazing!  It starts with a sweet complex nuttiness before the heat starts setting in.  The burn is a slow building and long lasting heat.  Not nearly as strong as a Habanero but hotter than most Jalapenos.  The plant this showed up on this year was also the largest pepper plant we have ever grown.  It was 8 feet tall and wide and the trunk was at least 2.5 to 3 inches wide.  At it's peak it had over 350 peppers at one time so a very heavy producer.  Great for salsas and adding great heat and flavor to any dish.

Heat level:  15,000 - 30,000 (SHU) Scoville Heat Units – Hot.

Flavor:  Sweet, Nutty, Earthy - Complex.
