Scoville Heat Units: 0-500 SHU

The Trinidad Perfume chili pepper is a mild chili pepper with very little to no heat. It is a habanero type and produces pods similar to a typical orange habanero pepper, about 1 to 1.5 inches in length and 1.25 inches wide. The mature from green to a bright yellow color. When cooked, they give off a perfume-like scent, hence the name. In flavor, they have a mild citrus-like taste, similar to a habanero, but with smoky undertones.

  1. Of all the chilli seeds I’m attempting to grow, this is one I’m particularly keen for success with. Perhaps because I live in an area with a strong Afro-Caribbean culture, perhaps because I’m not the sort who likes likes a scotch bonnet on my cornflakes…
    I should say I live in the NW of England for growing conditions which have been exceptionally hot & dry this year in my South facing garden.
    I put a seed in each small pot of GP compost, moistened the soil by standing in lukewarm water for an hour & then, IMPORTANTLY! let the moisture drain for at least two hours. Importantly because the next step is to cover the pots in clear plastic on a warm, sunny windowsill which, if the soil is too damp, is the perfect environment for mould leading to ‘Damping off,’ of the seedlings.
    First observation is that a little patience is needed, these were by far the slowest of a range of seeds to germinate.
    That’s my progress so far… My next step is putting some of the seedlings outdoors in late Summer England to see how tough they are & keeping some protected on a sunny, South-facing shelf.
    I’d really appreciate any helpful knowledge if anyone has grown these before?
