2023 Pepper Crop

2022 was a pretty good year for growing chile peppers in Wisconsin. As always, some varieties produced better than others but overall a successful growing season. Now the operation is put away for the winter. This past year I tried a few new methods for growing my crop to make my "Urban Farm" more manageable and productive. Had a few glitches but overall successful enough to continue the same operation for 2023.

I want to take this time to thank all the customers who purchased peppers from Doorstep Peppers whether online or at local markets in 2022. Your interest, feedback and purchases help me decide what varieties of chile peppers to grow in coming years. With that said, I am posting the varieties of hot chile peppers I anticipate growimg this year. Now, due to the fact that there are things that I certainly can't control, this list is merely a wih list at this point. Later on towards May I will have a firm handle on what germinated and grew.  Like last yar there was a catastrophic failure with the Chocolate Habanero peppers. sometimes that happens. Fingers crossed for this year.

I'd especially like to thank my good friend Mike Timm for once again providing me with the absolutely most amazing plant stock to work with. I am very anxious to grow some of his crosses as well as most of your favorite varieties, and have them available at local markets this summer and fall and for online sales.

Please see the list below for chile pepper varieties I anticipate offering for2023. I encourage and welcome your suppoort and feedback in the form of social media posts and GOOGLE Reviews. Please post pictures of what you created with the peppers you purchased from Doorstep Peppers or share recipes with fellow Pepper People.

I'm looking forward to another exceptional year in 2023!

Lemondrop 50,000-70,000 SHU
(Aji Limon) Citrus like lemon flavored pepper, a popular seasoning pepper in Peru.

"Red Jamaican" Hot 200,000-350,000 SHU
Fruity flavor, great for hot sauce or cooking.

"Yellow Jamaican" HOT 200,000-350,000 SHU
Fruity and very similar to the habanero.

Habanero, Chocolate 100,000 to325,000 SHU
A somewhat smoky flavor but very similar to the habanero but occasionally
with twice the heat. 

Habanero "Caribbean Red Hot"
 300,000-500,000 SHU
Citrusy, somewhat smoky flavor with heat greater than Habanero.

 Fatalii, Yellow 300,000-500,000 SHU
Fruity, citrus flavor with a somewhat searing heat compared to a Habanero.

Tangerine Trinidad Scorpion 400,000 -600,000 SHU
A yellow Scorpion chile pepper that has a citrusy-sweet, and fruityflavor and suddenly that transforms intoan intense, lasting heat.

King B. O. C. 900,000 - 1,00,000 SHU
B. O. C.(Bhut Orange Copenhagen) If super hot chille peppers are too hot for you, this variety is at the lower end of the "HOT" scale.A sweet, citrusy orange flavor with a wealth of heat.

J.P.G.S. x. White Bhut (AKA White Knight) 800,000 - 1,000,000 SHU
Upon biting into it, you'll taste a smooth almost sweet flavor and then the heat hits. The heat continues to intensifyslowly for the first couple seconds and then the searing heat takkes over.

M. A. Purple 1,000,000 + SHU
The firey burn is quite similar to a Ghost pepper only hotter. The fruity, somewhat earthy flavor will fool you each and every time you bite into it.

M. A. Wartryx 1,000,000 to 1,200,000 SHU
The M. A. Wartryx is a cross between a Trinidad Scorpion,  7 Pot Jonah and a Ubatuba Cambucci pepper yet has a Scotch Bonnet shape. You bite into this and initially you say

to yourself, what a sweet, rather fruity-citrusy flavor then you realize your face is melting off.

Peach Bhutlah 1,500,000 + SHU
The Peach Bhutlah possesses a very fruity flavor that hits you at first bite then it brings the pain.

Chocolate Bhutlah D.M. 1,800,000 - 2,000,000  SHU
"When it comes to hot peppers, this variety delivers incendiary heat" quoted from Chile Pepper Madness. It's said to have a smoky, fruity, floral, nutty flavor. Then again, you forget all that flavor if you recover from the heat.

Carolina Reaper 1,500,000 - 2,000,000  SHU
The Caroliina Reaper is said to have a fruity initial flavor, being momentarily sweet and then immediatelyturning into "molten lava". Need I say more?

R. K. Death Naglah 1,500,000 - 2,200,000  SHU
"If you're looking for atoomic heat. If you're looking for that miind trip on a capsaicin magic carpet ride right into the inferno's of hell, look no further" (Quote from I can't elaborate on that at all.

Caramel Primotalii 2,200,000 + SHU
Another variety from JimmyPickles. It has a similar sort of aromatic, slightly fruity flavor like the other super hots. Definitely packing scorching heat!!! 

Golden Primotalii 2,200,000 + SHU

Sort of mustard-like flavor with an incredible amount of heat.
