Attractive, golden-yellow, squat little peppers with a shocking heat and superb fruit-like flavor. They also have a wonderful, unique aroma. A standard in Caribbean cooking. Wonderful, but very spicy—please use caution. We offer a Brazilian strain with a flat shape.

What are the pros? Taste, easy to grow

What are the cons? Pests make off with them

Review:

I'm not sure about the previous reviews that found these to be almost heatless. Ours grew very hot. I like heat, but I love complex flavor. These peppers struck a nice balance. They had a very tropical fruity taste, and a challenging bit of heat. They dry easily, and make excellent hot sauce. They shot up a lot earlier then most peppers I've grown but immediately halted any activity for a month or so. It seemed we wouldn't get any at first, and then they slowly began producing. Of course pests started taking these too, their color is striking and reminds me of a pumpkin. I figured their heat would be a pest deterrent but lo and behold I've been proven wrong.

What are the pros? easy to grow, hiegh yields

What are the cons? slow to mature

Review:

Easy to grow, but this is not C. chinense, so it is not a scotch bonnet. It is some type of C. annuum perhaps with some scotch bonnet phenotypes. Very little heat and none of the classic scotch bonnet flavor. Easy to grow, but if you're looking for a scotch bonnet, this is not it.

Review:

I love this Pepper! It has a great tropical flavor, beautifulyellow fruit on the plant and dries to a wonderful golden! Start plants early in Wisconsin, we have a short season of hot weather. I started mine in January and will start them in December this year. I normallyh end up pulling the plants before it freezes to complete ripening.

What are the cons? No heat and weak taste.

Review:

Not at all worth growing. No heat and taste like a typical sweet pepper. They have a unique color. Plants were big and loaded with peppers. If you want caribbean flavor avoid these.

Review:

Scotch Bonnets are rarely sold at supermarkets here in Northern California and so I jumped at the chance to grow them. Like many hot peppers, Scotches are slow growers (two months in a greenhouse, three months to mature after transplanting), but my three bushes had few transplant shock problems and they yielded up to three dozen peppers. The peppers tasted great in Jamaican jerk chicken and curry. They're akin to a sweeter and fruitier habanero.
