The Red Savina is a cultivar of the Habanero chilli and was selectively bred to produce hotter, heavier, and larger fruit than the traditional habanero. The Red Savina is also known as the Dominican Devil's Tongue Pepper or the Ball of Fire Pepper in Guyana. It is fruity in taste, almost like a VERY hot apricot!
Warning: Extremely hot! This chilli will not discriminate. Under no circumstances should one of these chillies be left with an unwitting person, especially a child.
