Dare we say it – another superhot chilli exclusive to Sea Spring Seeds. The fruit measure 20 x 50mm, which is fairly small for a superhot, and change from light green to an unusual matt red (i.e. not shinny) as they mature. The skin texture of these chillies is unique; other superhots all have a wrinkled appearance, but these fruit are distinguished by tiny pimples scattered over an otherwise smooth surface. The plants are medium tall and produce yields that can be quite good.
However, what Dorset Zinger lacks in appearance is made good in heat: it has topped a whooping 1 million SHUs.
Heat level: approx 1,058,000 SHU (superhot)
