The Caribbean Red Hot Pepper was found in, you guessed it, the Caribbean but it was later improved into the pepper it is today. The bright red fruit is wrinkled and 1 1/2 by 1 inch. Be careful though, Caribbean Reds are hotter than habaneros! Being sensitive to the cold, planting should be delayed until the danger of frost is past in the spring. Ideal temperatures are 70 to 80 degrees F during the day, and 60 to 70 degrees F at night. Usually, the plants set satisfactory crops when temperatures are between 65 and 80 degrees F and the soil is well-supplied with moisture. Avoid a soggy, water-logged soil condition when growing peppers.
