This variety of chili pepper is extremely hot with a Scoville rating of 100,000 to 350,000. The fiery pepper with a spicy smoky taste changes in color as it ripens from green to fire engine red when mature and at its hottest. Wrinkly 1 to 1 ½ inch peppers grow on short densely foliaged plants that do well in containers or the garden. Removing the seeds and membrane inside the pepper before using will help control the heat of the pepper, chop very fine to more evenly distribute the pepper’s heat in the dish.
