Scoville Heat Units (SHU):
30,000 - 50,000 (Estimated)

Developed by Steve Bender at Innovation Acre, the Caribbean Charapita is a cross between the Caribbean Red Habanero and Aji Charapita. Bender’s goal with this cross was to create a larger version of the Aji Charapita while also preserving its delicious fruity flavor. This new cross starts off green and ripens to red, with the small pods being more elongated compared to the Aji Charapita. The flavor of the Caribbean Charapita is fruity and sweet, making this pepper perfect for tropical hot sauces, salsas, marinades, and drying for powder. The heat level is comparable to the Aji Charapita, which averages about 30,000 to 50,000 Scoville Heat Units.

At Tyler Farms, we grow our plants the old fashioned way: no pesticides, no synthetic fertilizers, and we only use all natural fertilizers such as worm castings and fish emulsion. Plants are shipped in 3 inch reusable plastics pots and approximately 4 to 6 inches tall.

    As someone who loves spicy food, the Caribbean Charapita pepper plant is a dream come true. The peppers are hot, but they also have a unique, slightly citrusy flavor that adds depth to any dish. The plant is easy to care for and produces an abundance of peppers. I’ve been able to share the harvest with friends and family, and they all love it too.

    The Caribbean Charapita pepper plant is not only a producer of spicy peppers but also a beautiful plant. The small red peppers stand out against the green foliage, adding a pop of color to my garden. The peppers have a potent heat that’s perfect for making hot sauces. It’s a prolific producer, so I’ve had plenty of peppers to experiment with in the kitchen. Highly satisfied with this pplant.
