Scoville Heat Units: 125,000-325,000 SHU

The Fatalii comes from central and southern Africa, and is one of the hottest peppers in the world. With the heat level of a habanero, it has a more fruity, citrus flavor, and packs an instant, intense burn, unlike the habanero, whose heat “sneaks up on you.”

The peppers grow to about 3 inches long, and mature to yellow. They have somewhat thin walls, and may be dried if cut lengthwise. They could be made into a powder for an intense spice, or frozen for later use.

    I’ve grown dozens of different types of peppers (mild to reapers, 7-pots, etc.) and this one is in my top 5. It’s very versatile since — like you say — it brings a similar heat level to a hab, but a different flavor profile.
