The Irish Shrub was discovered growing near a farm in southwest Ireland, a challenging region for most peppers to grow due to the cool climate. The peppers are similar to very small Thai peppers, but they do not have the same heat level. Irish Shrub peppers have a medium heat that is similar to the Pequin pepper, which averages about 40,000 to 60,000 Scoville Heat Units. Irish Shrub pepper seeds are some of the smallest known pepper seeds in the world.

    Tiniest seeds sprouted.

    Posted by George Moore on 11th Apr 2021

    Capsicum annuum var. conoides (Mill.) Irish
    Species name if anyone wants to do research.
    The tiny seeds makes the tiniest seedlings. My other peppers have vastly outgrown the Irish shrubs and I have to play musical chairs with them so the tiny seedlings get optimal light. There’s nothing wrong with them: roots look healthy and leaves are fine. I inoculated mycorrhizae fungus on the roots and it’s forming a nice symbiotic relationship with the pepper plant. Can’t wait to see what the plant will turn into and make fermented hot sauce. I plan to over winter this pepper.

    I'm of Irish decent and heard about these rare seeds but had trouble finding them. Looks like I came to the right place. The seeds sprouted a few weeks after planting.

    After shopping around and evaluating different seed companies, I decided to order several different seeds from Tyler Farms and I am so glad that I did. My small package of seeds arrived within a week of when I ordered them and I am on my way towards creating an edible garden.

    The seeds are tiny but they sprouted. Looking forward to trying the pepper that was so much a part of my heritage! Steve Bender even told me about the history of the Irish Shrub pepper... what a remarkable story!
