“The pods are bigger than a golf ball”
Scotch Bonnet originates from the Caribbean Islands. The Scotch Bonnet is a variety of chilli pepper similar to and of the same species as the habanero. It’s named for its resemblance to a Scotsman’s bonnet. The plant grows well in a pot to about 70 cm in height and even bigger if you plant it in the ground.
The pods are bigger than a golf ball, heavy and globular shaped. First they start up a light green end end up a bright red when it is fully mature.
