At 300,000 Scoville Heat Units, the Scotch Bonnet Red is a great introduction to the world of very hot chillies, with a distinct tropical flavour beneath the heat.

Native to the Caribbean, the Scotch Bonnet is a cultivar of the Habanero, and was named after its resemblance to a tam o' shanter hat.

It has a sweet, tropical flavour, with apple and tomato undertones. Despite being sweet, it is also very hot, measuring in at around 200,000 to 300,000 Scoville Heat Units. It is most commonly used in hot sauces, but can also be eaten fresh. It tastes sweet when it first hits the tongue, but 15 seconds later you'll start to feel the burn!

This chilli has a variety of alternate names, including Bahama Mama, Scotty Bons, Bonney Pepper, Boabs Bonnet and goat pepper. Also an orange variety.
