Scotch Bonnet Red is one of the best known and popular chillies & our certainly rates as our top seller. It gets its name from the Scottish ‘tam o’ shanter’ hat it resembles.

The chillies are very very hot with a strong aroma. They measure 2.5 to 4cm long by 2.5 to 3cm wide and mature from a lovely pale green to red. They taste best fresh but this thin-walled variety can also be frozen/pickled or put in olive oil very successfully.

It is a short bushy plant that reaches about 50cm tall and looks ‘fab’ in containers but as Scotch Bonnets are late to mature (late Aug/Sept) sow early to ensure it produces good yields.

This is not one for the ‘faint hearted’ but great for chilli heads!
