Trinidad Pimento

(Capsicum chinense)

The Trinidad Pimento is also known as the Trinidad Seasoning pepper. It is the most popular cooking pepper on the Islands of Trinidad and Tobago. It turns from light green to dark red or orange red. The elongated peppers can get over 3 inches in length and about 1/2 inch in diameter.

It has the flavor of extremely hot peppers but almost no heat! Great for making a mild sauce or salsa or used to be a tastier substitute for where you might apply bell peppers. The plants are very productive and get about 4 feet tall.

At Refining Fire Chiles we isolate our seed production plants to avoid cross-pollination with other chile species. If you would like to try it yourself please contact us for seeds, plants (March-August) and fresh chiles (September).

We also grow the Bhut Jolokia, Naga Morich, Chocolate Habanero and many other Hot Chile Pepper plant varieties!
