“Sugar Rush Peach” is a peach-colored sport of Sugar Rush (red Aji type), discovered and stabilized by Chris Fowler of Wales. It is stated that Mr. Fowler judged the unusual peach-colored variant sweeter than the original Sugar Rush. I have to say that I cannot tell, because it has a good bit of heat. I have never been able to discern fruitiness or sweetness when my mouth is on fire. It definitely has a fine fruity aroma.
Sugar Rush Peach has been described by some as having medium heat, and by others as having habanero-type heat. It was quite hot for me.
Vendors describe the plant growth habit as tall, 5 feet or more. Mine stayed right at two feet, most likely because of my challenging growing conditions and the bed it was in, which has a greater percentage of my native poor, acid, sandy soil than my other beds. Yet I would guess that this variety could be grown successfully in a pot. The pot could limit the plant size, but as in my smaller plant, productivity could remain very high.
Regarding my currently limited stock, I had a smaller and a larger batch of blooms covered. Unfortunately, a storm tore open the covering over the larger branch, so I am not certain they are uncrossed. My stock here is from the blooms I know for certain were isolated, and is therefore limited until this year’s crop bears.
NOTE: 10 seeds per package.
