Orange Butch T Hot Pepper (2-Pack)

2PK |  4.5" Pot |  $29.99
If you like your peppers insanely hot, this one’s for you. Orange Butch T creates a culinary solar flare—so beware! Originating from the 2011 to 2013 Guinness World Record-holder red Butch T hot pepper, Orange Butch T produces the same mega-heat and fruity flavor but in a pretty orange package. The fruit’s scorpion-like stinger provides fair warning: This pepper has an element of danger. Extreme eaters love it for the sweet flavor that’s quickly replaced by a fiery burn. Be careful eating it fresh—it’s best used to flavor hot sauces, chili jams, and Caribbean dishes. The plant reaches 36 inches tall and grows beautifully in garden beds or containers. Adding a cage to your pepper plant helps support stems when heavy with fruit. Hybrid. Place in full sun and feed regularly. Scoville heat units: 800,000 to 1,463,700. Wear gloves and protect eyes when handling fruit. Matures in 90 to 120 days. Read More

The Highlights

Welcome your Plant

1. Remove Packaging

Take each individual bonnie plant out of the box before carefully opening each individual plant’s packaging. Be cautious of soil that may have shifted during transportation.

2. Check the Soil

Your plants were watered right before shipping, but they may have become thirsty during travel. If the soil is dry to the touch, give your plants a good drink before planting.

3. Adjustment Period

Let your plants get used to their new environment. Set them in a warm, sunny spot for 34 to 48 hours so they can recover from their trip before being planted.

Long term Care

1. Location, location

Find the right spot for your plant. Check each plant’s tag for information on how much sun your plan’s need. Growing tip: if your plant needs full sun, a south-facing area will give you the most sunlight. If your plan can grow in part shade, an east or west-facing window might be enough.

2. Soil & drainage

Making sure your container has holes to allow excess water to drain is vital to your plant’s health! We recommend planting your Bonnie Plant in Miracle-Gro Potting Mix for containers, or Miracle-Gro Garden Soil for planting in ground.

3. Hungry plants

Feeding your plants is one of the best ways to improve your plant’s health and maximize your harvest. We recommend feeding with Miracle-Gro plant food when you transplant, and feeding regularly following label directions for best results.
