Named for its resemblance to the Scottish Tam o'Shanter hat, most Scotch Bonnets have a heat rating of 100,000–350,000 Scoville Units. This is really very, very hot, and just for comparison, most jalapeño peppers have a heat rating of 2,500 to 8,000. Fresh bonnets change from green to colours ranging from yellow to scarlet red and taste best fresh, but this thin-walled variety can also be frozen or pickled or even put in olive oil very successfully. They are used to flavour many different dishes and cuisines worldwide, and are especially useful in hot sauces and condiments. (Heat-4)

Sowing Advice

Surface-sow or barely cover the seeds indoors, and keep moist and warm above 20C. (Peppers generally demand warmer conditions than tomatoes to germinate successfully). When sprouts appear move them to a sunny window. Set out well-developed transplants when weather is warm. Peppers need rich moist soil and warm sunny conditions to flourish. Best sown in early spring.
