Scotch Bonnet Chilli Plug Plant (3 Pack)
The Scotch Bonnet chilli pepper, which is also known as scotty bons, bonney peppers or Caribbean red peppers, is named for its resemblance to a tam o' shanter hat. Most Scotch bonnets have a heat rating of 100,000 – 350,000 SHU (Scoville Heat Units). In comparison, most Jalapeno chilli peppers have a heat rating of 2,500 - 8,000 SHU.
These chillies are used to flavour many different dishes and cuisines worldwide and are often used in hot sauces and condiments. The Scotch bonnet has a sweeter flavour and stouter shape, distinct from its habanero cousin, and gives jerk dishes (pork/chicken) and other Caribbean dishes their unique flavour.
Fresh, ripe Scotch Bonnets Chillies change from green to colours ranging from yellow to red.
