Details

This pepper originates from the Central African Republic. If you like the Yellow Fatalii, you will love the rare red version. A relative of the original Fatalii, the Red Fatalii is a large, spicy, thin-walled pepper with a sweet, fruity flavor and aroma. This variety was created by crossing the Red Devil's Tongue and the Yellow Fatalii. A great pepper for tropical hot sauces and salsas, the Red Fatalii can also be dried to make a flavorful chili powder. In addition to its fruity flavor, it also offers quite a kick as it averages about 125,000 to 400,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU), making it slightly hotter than the Habanero pepper, but not quite as hot at the Ghost pepper. Non-Isolated.

SHU: 125,000 - 400,000
