The Datil is an exceptionally hot pepper, a variety of the species Capsicum chinense (syn. Capsicum Sinense). Datils are similar to habaneros but have a sweeter, fruitier flavor. Their level of spiciness may be anywhere from 100,000 to 300,000 scoville units. Datil peppers are cultivated throughout the United States and elsewhere, but the majority are produced in St. Augustine, Florida, where they have been traditionally cultivated for roughly two-hundred thirty years.
