The Q&A Archives: Scotch Bonnet

Question: I like hot peppers and I like to grow them. Where can I find Scotch Bonnet seeds or plants? Through my reading they're just as hot as the habenero peppers if not hotter.

Answer: Scotch bonnet peppers are right up there with habanero peppers, registering between 150,000 and 350,000 on the heat unit scale. The hottest pepper I can find is called Caribbean Red Habanero. It's listed about 445,000 on the Scoville Heat Unit scale. Seeds for Scotch bonnet and Caribbean Red Habanero are available from The Pepper Gal, PO Box 23006, Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33307. Phone 954-537-5540.
