Datil Pepper


The Datil pepper is a variety of the species Capsicum Chinese also known as "yellow lantern chili." The fruit of Datil peppers grows to be anywhere from 1/4 inch to 4 inches long, and they are a yellowish-orange color when ripe. Many people use this pepper for Moroccan recipes in order to add some kick!

A Datil pepper is similar in its heat index to a Habanero, hitting at around 100,000 to 300,000 on the Scoville scale. But unlike Habanero's, Datil peppers are sweet, with a fruitful tangy taste to them.
