The name of this attractive habanero refers to the fruit, which are pastel yellow with, well, a bumpy surface. They have an unusual top-shape and measure about 30 x 35mm in size. Their other distinctive feature is a beautiful citrus aroma, which is in abundance when a fruit is broken open. The plants are just under 70cm tall, with an 85cm spread. If you like your chillies hot this is a great one for the kitchen, while also being a stunning ornamental.
