Yellow Scotch Bonnet
200,000 – 350.000 SHU
The Scotch Bonnet goes by so many different names it can be quite confusing (AKA Bahamian, Bahama Mama, Jamaican Hot or Martinique Pepper). It got its name from resembling a Scot’s Bonnet and is one that tastes as good as it looks. This is the yellow version which has a slightly more citrus flavour than the red variety. It is closely related to the Habanero but is a bit sweeter with a smoother mouth burn. The fruit grow to approximately 2.5 cm wide and 4 cm long and the bush is quite compact, growing to over a meter. Originally from the Caribbean it is widely cultivated in Jamaica where it is extensively used in their cuisine.
