Jamaican Hot Red
Its fruity flavour, tropical aroma and very decent chilli kick (150,000 SHU) has made the Jamaican Hot Red very popular in hot sauces. Slightly hotter than its yellow counterpart.
This Jamaican variety looks almost like a bright red mushroom due to it's flat/squashed shape. It has a fruity flavour and tropical aroma, and is used in the Caribbean for making delicious hot sauces.
The plant is relatively compact, rarely exceeding 60cm in height, and is a good grower, producing more than 50 pods of fruit per plant. Fruit is green, before maturing to a bright red.
At 100,000 - 200,000 Scoville Heat Units, you can still taste the delectable flavour beneath the heat.
Also comes in a yellow variety, though the red is thought to be slightly hotter.
