The Fish Hot pepper is a peculiar pepper that is thought to have originated from either Africa or the Caribbean.  The plant produces 3-4 cm (1½") long by 1.3 cm (½") wide, medium hot peppers with a SHU range between 5000-30,000 Scoville Heat Units.  The distinctive peppers turn from cream white with green stripes, to orange with brown stripes, then to red when mature. The 61 cm (24”) tall plant usually has dark green leaves with variegated white patches.  It was made famous as a seasoning used in fish dishes. Peppers can used as a spice to make a cream sauce for shellfish.​
