FAQs about finger peppers
Finger peppers have between 4,000 and 60,000 Scoville heat units (SHU), averaging about 20,000 to 30,000 SHU. The Scoville scale is a measure of heat that's based on the concentration of capsaicinoids in peppers. Since the human palate varies greatly from one individual to the next, it's helpful to have a comparison so you can understand how hot finger peppers really are.
A jalapeno pepper has 2,500 to 8,000 SHU, so an average finger pepper would be around 10 times hotter than a jalapeno. An especially spicy finger pepper might be as much as 24 times hotter. Cayenne pepper is typically between 30,000 and 50,000 SHU, which makes it comparable to a finger pepper. Habanero peppers are far hotter. At 100,000 to 350,000 SHU, a habanero pepper can be more than 11 times spicier than a finger pepper.
To preserve their freshness, you should store finger peppers in a plastic bag in the fridge. The vegetable drawer is the very best place for them. They prefer a temperature between 40 and 45 degrees Fahrenheit. Whole peppers will typically keep for two to three weeks this way. Stored at room temperature, finger peppers will usually last for a week or two. The best way to store peppers at room temperature is to place them in a paper bag in a cool, dark place.
If you want your peppers to last longer, you can brine them by placing them in a jar with enough water to cover them and about one tablespoon of salt for each cup of water. You can freeze peppers for long-term storage by placing them flat on a baking sheet and putting them in the freezer. Once they're frozen, you can transfer them to plastic bags.
