Capsicum chinense

Originating in Suriname, this habanero-type chilli was measures a surprising 572,000 SHU on our Dorset nursery. The wrinkled, elongated fruit are wide at the shoulder, then quickly taper down to a point. They are about 60mm long, change from green to red as they ripen, and have a lovely aroma when broken open.

The plants are fairly tall and do best in the ground or large pots, 10 litres or more in volume. Seed supply is limited and the price reflects this fact. In addition, this is a hard variety to germinate, so be sure to keep the germinating temperature up for best results. For more information on germinating chillies see "How to Grow Chillies".
