Plant Features

Scotch Bonnet Hot Pepper Plants bear fruits comparable to the Habanero pepper, but with a touch more of sweetness and spiciness. It’s a favorite for Caribbean dishes. Plants offer big yields all season long. Peppers can be harvested at different stages.

A little note: to control the heat, remove the seeds and the membrane on the inside of the pepper before adding to your favorite recipes; chopping it very, very fine will more evenly distribute the heat throughout the dish. We recommend you wear nitrile or latex gloves to protect your hands and avoid touching your face while handling Ghost peppers.

Our Scotch Bonnet Hot Pepper Plants are grown with a commitment to natural methods, ensuring they're healthy and robust. Guaranteed to arrive alive and thriving!

Great Buys

I bought 2 Scotch Bonnet Hot Pepper plants and they came better than I expected. The plants are thriving and producing, definitely a great purchase.

From Adeyemi | August 20, 2023

Scotch Bonnet plants

The scotch bonnet plants came well packaged and were very healthy. The root ball of each of them clearly indicated they had been maturing for a while. I hardened them for a week or so and then put them in the ground. They are already starting to grow and look very healthy. Have ordered similar plants from other places online and these are by far the best ones so far. Looking forward to a bountiful harvest!

first time buyer, very impressed with the plants and their packaging, very meticulous and all in great condition. Right now in greenhouse, a little more warmth and out they go outdoors. Love the plants, couldn't even get seeds to grow before finding this site. Will be back for more.

Good plants. One was damaged in the mail. Called and left a message. 4 days later a new plant arrived.

From William | June 21, 2019

Great plants

Just put into the ground last week. So far so good

From Frank | June 15, 2019


The plants arrived in perfect shape despite a long trip. The packaging was so good that I saved it in case I ever send a plant to a friend.

From robert | May 29, 2019

Beautiful! Packaging as always

One of my plants had a hard time in the process. They replaced it wanting to make it right. I didn't even complain as all the others were in outstanding shape. But they wanted to replace the one that suffered. The result was friggen awesome! This plant is killer! I can't wait for the scotch bonnet These peppers have all the flavor and heat you'll ever need.

From Darrell | April 24, 2019

Packaging Genius!

I've never bought plant seedlings online before. But the packaging on these babies is phenomenal! If they die it's all my fault. The seedlings are strong and healthy. Enough moisture to let them sit in a box after delivery for a few days. I didn't think it was possible to send live plants. These looked like they came right out of the nursery. I hope you keep on through the trouble at the time. You are AWESOME!

From Darrell | March 27, 2019

Scott Bonnet

Great Pepper plants.

From tom | April 28, 2018

Scotch Bonnet...

I was very happy with how well the plant was packaged. The soil was still moist even after the plant’s long journey. The plant was shorter than I expected, but the main stem looks thick and strong. I can’t wait to eat a bunch of peppers this summer!

Scotch Bonnet Peppers

This is the second year I am purchasing my scotch bonnet pepper seedlings from GrowJoy. They arrived healthy and never missed a beat after being planted.

From Grace | April 30, 2015

Scotch Bonnet Hot Pepper plant

Had to plant inside because it's too cold to plant outside. So far, they are doing great.

From Dawn | May 19, 2014

Product good, USPS not so good

USPS disregarded the "This side UP" stickers, and left it on its side over the weekend, so the pepper plants had a bend in them when they got to me. Other than that, the plants are healthy and should be just fine! Can't wait for some Scotch Bonnet peppers!

From Jared | May 12, 2014

Healthy Quality Hot Peppers

Very healthy Scotch Bonnet plant was delivered. I'M impressed with the shipping method.

Gorgeous Hot Pepper plants

I ordered several different hot pepper plants. I was very surprised at the quality of them upon arrival. First of all, they were packaged in such a way that no harm had come to them in shipping. They were strong, mature plants that continue to thrive. I look forward to a bountiful crop this year and will definitely order from GrowJoy again for all my plant needs. Customer service was also very friendly and helpful.
