White Thai Pepper Seeds
If you’re gardening in SW Ohio or anywhere else, and you’re keen on an early harvest, the White Thai should be on your radar. Please note: This isn’t the KS or Khang Starr variety; this is your traditional White Thai pepper plant.
The fruit starts growing with a pale white hue. As time passes, these peppers mature to a rich red color, providing an indicator that they’re fully ripe. No need to wait until the fruit are red though; the chilis can be used during the white immature state.
So, how hot are White Thai peppers? The heat level ranges between 50,000 to 75,000 SHU. It’s worth noting that these figures are estimates, and actual Scoville ratings can vary depending on growing conditions. While they’re not as scorching as something like a Ghost pepper, they pack enough heat to be taken seriously.
The White Thai is a versatile culinary player. Its heat level is well-suited for a variety of applications. Think hot sauces, where its distinct heat can shine. The White Thai is in our household “go-to” flake mix for daily use. It’s also an excellent choice for southern hot vinegar, serving as a unique alternative to the more commonly used Tabasco.
