At a guess…350,000 – 400,000 SHU
Raphael Alber has created a few amazing varieties but this is by far one of our favorites. Obviously this one is a cross but with what is still a bit of a mystery. It doesn’t matter because this one is a winner for taste and looks. It’s hard to describe the flavour but there are hints of berry / cinnamon undertones. Better than any other chocolate chilli variety we’ve tasted. It gives a very pleasant all over mouth burn and subjectively seems around the habanero heat level. Pods look great and start out a dark olive green with grooves before ripening to a unique matt chocolate finish. Would be sensational powdered we think and we will be drying ours for sure. Can’t recommend this one enough.
