Super Chili Chili Peppers

40,000-50,000 Scovilles.

These small peppers grow upright in clusters and mature from light green to red, often with shades of orange in between. They do best in a hot, humid climate. They grow to 1 ½”-2” in length and ½”- 1” in width and have a cone shape. They are decorative and colorful, and are often used as a border in gardens with limited space.

The Super Chili is great for flavoring Asian dishes, including Thai and Szechwan cuisine, among others. Like many other chili peppers, they can be harvested and used at any stage of maturity.

    I typically use these as dried, rough grind chile to shake into various dishes ( and on pizza.). Productive in the Mid-west and one of my staples

    Hotter than chile serrano, milder than chile habanero - they have a straightforward flavor and compliment Asian cuisines. They're a little one dimensional for salsa, in my opinion. I love this heat level, though.

    Debra, these run in the range of 40,000-50,000 Scoville Heat Units, which is starting to get fairly hot.
