Scotch Bonnet Freeport Orange originated from Freeport, Bahamas. It is very similar to the Bahamian Goat. As with most Scotch Bonnets they have a similar heat level as a Habanero. They have a sweet floral flavor with a slow burn that hits the back of your throat. The peppers are bonnet shaped usually with 3 to 4 lobs and some come to a tiny point. They ripen from green to an Orange-cream color. Plants are extremely productive and can reach around 3-4 feet tall. Non-Isolated.
