The Sugar Rush Peach pepper is a very popular due to spicy flavor and colorful appearance. The heat level is significant, but not overbearing. The Sugar Rush Peach pepper starts off sweet and fruity with notes of apricot, peach, and citrus, but finishes with the heat of a mild Habanero. It has the perfect blend of citrus tang and medium spice. Sugar Rush Peach peppers have a cylindrical shape that tapers at the end, with a slightly wrinkled looking exterior. Sugar Rush Peach peppers grow on high yielding plants that can reach 5 feet in height. The Sugar Rush Peach pepper averages about 80,000 to 150,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU), which is not quite as hot as the Habanero pepper, but hotter than the Thai pepper and the Pequin pepper.
The peppers, which grow to about three inches in length, start off green and mature to a peach color. During the summer months, Sugar Rush Peach pepper plants bloom white flowers, making them beautiful plants that add a burst of bright color to any garden. For those looking for a different peach pepper with a higher heat rating Scoville Scale, we recommend the Bahamian Goat, Peach Habanero, Peach 7 Pot, Peach Trinidad Scorpion, or California Reaper.
