Scotch Bonnet, also known as bonney pepper or Caribbean red pepper, is a variety of chili so called because of its resemblance to a hat. It is found mainly in the Caribbean islands; it is also found in Guyana (where it is called the fireball pepper), the Maldives Islands (where it is called githeyo mirus), Panama (where it is called aji chombo) and in West Africa.
Fresh, ripe Scotch Bonnet peppers can go from green to yellow to scarlet red; however, other varieties of this pepper can ripen to orange, yellow, peach, or even chocolate brown.
The degree of spiciness that these fruits can reach ranges from 100,000-350,000 Scoville degrees, very intense, suitable for those who love spicy foods.
To cultivate it must be considered that it is a pepper that prefers a warm and humid climate, similar to the tropical one. Water as needed.
Once it reaches maturity it detaches from the plant, throughout the summer.
