The Trinidad Pimento is also known as the Trinidad 'seasoning pepper'. It is the most popular cooking pepper on the islands of Trinidad and Tobago. It turns from light green to dark red or orange red. The elongated peppers can get over 3 inches in length and about 1/2 inch in diameter.

Seasoning peppers are used extensively when making the famous Trinidad 'green' seasoning. This is a marinade which varies from family to family but almost always includes fresh green herbs such culantro/cilantro/parsley/coriander, thyme, onion, garlic, scotch bonnets and of course lots of seasoning peppers. The bulk of the green herbs and often semi ripe seasoning peppers gives the marinade its distinctive green colour as well as its unique aromatic yet fruity aroma and flavour. The marinade is used on grilled meats and vegetables or as a base for soups and stews.

Heat level: heatless to mild with the occasional hot one. These chillies are similar to Pimiento de Padron in that there is the occasional odd hot one. Though, generally they generally mild to heatless. Therefore, it is advisable to try a small amount first. The riper the chilli the hotter it can be; although, this is not always the case and there are often more exceptions to the rule. Learn about Scoville Heat Units (SHUs) here.

Harvest: Starts fruiting about 120 days from potting on as seedlings and under good growing conditions. Pick when the fruits have reached their maximum size. Fruits ripen from green to red.

Size: Plants can grow quite tall up to 1m and will require support.

St vincent Pepper sauce

A small island called bequia has a big place in my heart and family and we always rave on about the pepper sauce. I managed to get some pepper seeds (flavour peppers) back and found they didn't really thrive and was gutted. Thought that was it, they don't exist in the UK, that's me done. Lone behold the Sdcf has them!!! Couldn't believe it. I Was a little sceptical as I thought surely they won't be the same.... they're identical in every way. Mind there's the odd hot one which was hotter than my trinidad scorpions. But I add 5 scorpions per bottle of pepper sauce. So not an issue for me. Also these are great in scrambled eggs! Looking foward to getting my plants this year in hope I can successfully get a harvest out of them haha.

Great for windowsills

Wow what can I say?! This pot plant arrived well packaged with only a minimum of spillage in the bag. There are so many flowers on it, I can't wait until they turn into lovely chillis.
100% recommend SDCF and their products, all enquiries are dealt with quickly and by people who really know their stuff, the pot plants are fantastic and really boost confidence in unsure home gardeners, and the chilli chocolate, chilli chutney & chilli jam are awesome!!

Third Order

This is my third order this season I wouldn’t keep coming back if the plants weren’t of the highest quality with a huge variety to choose from. The service is amazing, quick and beautifully packed. Now all I have to do is sit back and wait until they fruit.
