The Jamaican Scotch Bonnet, also known as Bahama Mama, has quickly become a Staff Favorite here at South GA Seed Co. This beautiful Caribbean Chili pepper is also quite popular in the Caribbean Islands and often used in spicy dishes. The plants are quite prolific putting off an abundant supply of gorgeous bonnet shaped peppers. The peppers start off green and slowly turn orange and then to a beautiful candy apple red as they mature often giving a two tone appearance. They are an impressive 100,000 to 350,000 units on the Scoville chart. Awesome chioce for the garden.

How to Save Seeds


Peppers are self pollinators, but will cross within the same species much like squash so it's best not to plant two of the same species. Separate by at least 500ft. Once peppers are ripe on stalk and fully dry harvest them cut open and scoop out seeds. Allow to dry for a week or so. Dry method works great.
