Raj’s Wiri Wiri
The name ‘wiri wiri’ refers to the small, round, habanero chillies that come from Guyana. Raj’s version has almost perfectly round fruit that measure about 13mm in diameter and ripen from green to red. Though relatively mild compared to some habanero chillies, they still pack a serious punch at 88,000 SHU.
The plants are medium tall, with fairly spreading branches. They can be grown in the ground or pots 5 to 10 litres in size. Some support is advisable to prevent them from falling over.
Heat level: very hot (approx. 88,000 SHU)
