Hot Pepper, 'Sarit Gat'

This beautiful and wonderfully productive chili was bred by the pioneering Austrian organic seed company ReinSaat. 'Sarit Gat,' meaning "Long Yellow," was bred from a diverse population of yellow chilis sourced from a farmer in Kosovo by ReinSaat breeder Reinhild Frech-Emmelmann, who then selected for color, uniformity, taste, and suitability for processing. Though it is known and available to some extent in Europe, it has virtually no presence this side of the Atlantic, and we’d like to change that. In 2015 it rivaled Czech Black as the most productive field-grown hot pepper we’ve ever grown, eventually requiring staking to prevent it from falling over from the weight of its fruit set. Uniform, canary-yellow, fruits have the approximate heat and shape of a cayenne and are great for hot sauce, powdering, or simply spicing up meals. Beautiful, productive, and hot…now a staple in our kitchen garden and very suitable for commercial production.
