Product Description

HOT PEPPERS: When Wilbur Scoville first devised a means to test the heat of peppers, his hottest entry then came in at 20,000 units. Habanero and Thai chilies can go as high as 60,000. Compare that to the sweet bell pepper at zero. When hot peppers are consumed, capsaicinoids bind with pain receptors in the mouth and throat that are responsible for sensing heat. Once activated by the capsaicinoids, these receptors send a message to the brain that the person has consumed something hot. The brain responds to the burning sensation by raising the heart rate, increasing perspiration and release of endorphins. Hot peppers should be eaten with caution!

Scotch Bonnet Habanero: 120 days – Words such as blistering and incendiary are used to describe the heat of this pepper. The ‘Scotch Bonnet’ is sweeter and a little less hot than other Habaneros, but still extremely hot. This variety will produce a crop in climates not quite hot enough for some of the other Habanero types. The flavor is citrusy, resembling an apricot. Great for salsa.
