Datil peppers are cultivated throughout the United States and elsewhere, but the majority are produced in St. Augustine, Florida. Many myths attempt to explain the origin of the Datil Pepper: some suggest the peppers were brought to St. Augustine by indentured workers from Menorca in the late 18th century, others posit that they were brought from Cuba around 1880 by a jelly maker named S. B. Valls

The Datil pepper is a beautiful and fiery pepper that appears almost like a miniature lantern with its small, plump shape and vibrant, bright yellow or orange hue. Its size ranges from about an inch to two inches in length with a slightly curved and pointed shape, adding to its distinctive appearance.

When you pick up a Datil pepper and hold it close, you'll notice its glossy and smooth skin that's almost leathery to the touch. As you slice into the pepper, you'll release an aroma that's pungent and tangy, instantly alerting your senses to its spiciness.

One of the most remarkable things about the Datil pepper is its intense and unique flavor. Its taste is a bit fruity with a sharp and pungent kick that's both sweet and fiery. The heat of the Datil pepper is not overpowering at first, but it builds up gradually and can leave you with a lingering and satisfying burn that can last for several minutes.

Overall, the Datil pepper is a beautiful and powerful spice that adds a unique dimension of flavor and heat to any dish. Its taste, aroma, and appearance make it a standout pepper in the culinary world, and it's no wonder that it's a staple in the cuisines of coastal Florida.
