Capsicum Chinense
CHILLI-SCOTCH BONNET-JAMAICAN YELLOW fruits ripen from green to yellow. Fruit size 4.5cm long by 3.8cm, plant height 1.2m. A compact type of chili plant that grows beautiful (and hot!) thin-skinned squash shaped golden colored pods.

The densely foliaged chilli plant bears many chilli peppers that have a mainly refreshing taste once you get past the rather intense heat. This is a really hardy variety of chilli that can withstand a range of conditions, although consistent frosts and/or boggy conditions will kill it. Heat level 8 – 10.
