Originating in Suriname, this habanero chilli registered a surprising 572,000 SHU when grown on our Dorset nursery several years ago. We have not had it tested since, but we believe it is capable of much greater heat levels.
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 first fruit produced on the plant, though, can be much smaller.
The plants are fairly tall and do best in the ground or large pots, 10 litres or more in volume.
Heat level: approx 572,000 SHU
