Capsicum chinense

Scotch bonnet belongs to the same species as the Habanero & is found mainly in the Caribbean islands. It is known for its mushroom-shaped thin-walled pod & pungent heat. Each chili of this particular type measures 2.5 to 4cm long by 2.50 to 3 cm wide & matures from a lovely pale green to bright orange. The chilies are very hot with a strong aroma. They taste best fresh but this variety can also be frozen, pickled or put in olive oil very successfully. It is a short bushy plant that reaches about 50cm tall. This is not one for the faint hearted but great for chili heads! Heat level 10
