Grow a garden filled with Yellow Jamaican Pepper plants, from freshly harvested Capsicum chinense pepper seeds. Yellow Jamaican Pepper plants will produce small fruits, measuring 1 to 2 inches in diameter. Their size is not relative to their kick however. Yellow Jamaican Peppers measure anywhere between 250,000 to 300,000 units on the Scoville heat scale. The outer skin of this variety is waxy with a bright yellow coloring. The plants themselves grow to a mature height of about 24 to 30 inches tall and about 24 inches wide. They can be grown directly in the garden, or in large pots and containers as well. They boast a sweet, fruity flavoring, much like Habanero Peppers and Scotch Bonnets.
Categorized as an annual vegetable plant, Yellow Jamaican will establish itself from freshly harvested seeds. They then grow quickly, producing flowers & fruits soon after. The plants will yield their small, waxy fruits through the summer months, later dying at the end of the season. Hot Peppers such as this originate in many Southern locations, such as Mexico, Peru and much of the Caribbean as well. Having said this, they will prefer arid, dry conditions to thrive.
Jamaican Peppers are a staple in many Mexican dishes, salsa's and hot sauces as well. Jamaican Peppers are considered one of the hottest peppers in the world, so you might consider wearing rubber gloves when processing Habanero peppers and do not touch your eyes. If you are sensitive to the heat, make sure to wear a mask over your mouth and nose and protect your eyes.
