The St. Augustine Scorpion was created by crossing the Orange Trinidad Scorpion and the Datil pepper. The pepper, which was developed at Innovation Acre, has a very similar fruity flavor profile to the Datil, but the St. Augustine Scorpion is slightly hotter. The peppers can be used to make delicious hot sauces, jellies, and mustards. The peppers start off green and ripen to orange, with some pods having a stinger-like tail. The name of the pepper pays homage to the Datil pepper’s origin: St. Augustine, Florida. The St. Augustine pepper averages over 500,000 Scoville Heat Units.
