Datil Pepper

Say hello to the Habanero’s fun younger counterpart. More tropical flavor than the Habanero, but not as much heat.

Aji Santa Cruz Pepper

rad-racer-sunsetThese bright red peppers remind me of the sunset level on Rad Racer, they’re that chill. And FAST.

One the largest baccatums I’ve seen. By far, one of the most underground and sexy peppers. They out there. However, in terms of spice, little or no heat to this one. Very mildwave.
