The Orange Thai pepper is a rare and exotic variant of the traditional Thai pepper. The thin walled peppers start off green and ripen to orange. Orange Thai pepper plants are high yielding and can grow as tall as four feet. The peppers have a slightly fruity flavor, and a medium heat level as it averages about 50,000 to 100,000 Scoville Heat Units, which is hotter than a Cayenne pepper but not as hot as a Habanero pepper. Orange Thai peppers have a perfect balance of flavor and heat which makes them a popular pepper for Asian cuisine, but there are also many other products that use Thai peppers as a main ingredient, including pepper flakes, hot sauces, and marinades. Orange Thai pepper plants are easily grown in containers, making them an ideal pepper to grow on a balcony, patio or deck. They grow and ripen early and produce all season long.
