This month, Gardyn introduces two new pepper varieties to our members: the Hungarian Hot Wax Pepper and the Lemon Hot Pepper. Both will help spice up your summer and are only available through the end of September!
Hot Peppers’ capsaicin content, or heat level, is measured and ranked on the Scoville Heat Unit (SHU) Scale. Currently, the Carolina Reaper tops the scale at 2,200,000 SHU! Luckily, our new pepper varieties don’t rack up nearly as many SHU’s while still packing a flavor punch. We promise, your taste buds will thank us!
Now is the time to curate your Gardyn pepper collection by choosing from our five tasty varieties: Sweet Peppers, Banana Peppers, Jalapeno Peppers, Hungarian Hot Wax Peppers, and Lemon Hot Peppers!
Find out where each variety falls on our Gardyn Pepper Scoville Scale below.

DIY Spicy Seasoning Blend
