The Bahamian Goat pepper has an intense heat level and a sweet fruity flavor. Native to the Bahamas, the Bahamian Goat is a very popular pepper in tropical hot sauces and Caribbean cuisine. The peach colored Bahamian Goat pepper has a similar heat level as its close relatives, the Habanero and Scotch Bonnet. The heat level ranges from 100,000 to 350,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU), which is hotter than the famous Charleston pepper and Thai pepper.
The Bahamian Goat pepper is two to three inches in length, peach colored, has smooth skin. Some people believe the Bahamian Goat pepper resembles a peach colored Trinidad Moruga Scorpion pepper, but there are a number of differences between the two. On rare occasions, the pepper will grow a scorpion-like tail. The Bahamian Goat pepper is surging in popularity because the flavor is outstanding, the heat level is intense but not overbearing, and the plants are high yielding.
