Scotch Bonnet Peppers needed
« on: January 06, 2020, 08:10:15 PM »
I am looking to purchase fresh Scotch Bonnet Peppers. Can anyone recommend somewhere in South Florida or online that I can purchase these for a reasonable price?

Wicked Mike

Hi there. Iím the grower at Galloway Farm Nursery, down in Miami. It sounds like youíre looking for fresh pods, which unfortunately isnít something we sell. However, if you have any interest in growing your own (which will cost you less than even the most reasonably priced pods), I will have something available in maybe two weeks that might be right up your alley.

Whenever I would do plant shows or speaking engagements, Iíd inevitably have a Jamaican come up and start raving about the Scotch Bonnet. How it wasnít just hot, but aromatic and flavorful. And I never got what they were going on about.

Well, thatís because I was used to what the grocery stores here in the States pass off as a Scotch Bonnet. Then, I sourced the Ministry of Agriculture Scotch Bonnet; theyíre like Jamaicaís version of the USDA. I grew them out, and well...letís just say I understand now what the Jamaicans are talking about.

We also have several other interesting varieties. My collection is up to more than 2,000 varieties from all over the world (although, needless to say, Iím not growing them all at the same time!). We also have quite a few of the more rare and unusual fruit trees.

If this sounds like something that interests you, Iím there Monday through Thursday (and occasionally Friday or Saturday) from 9 to 5. Nameís Mike; feel free to ask for me.
