Scoville Heat Units: 100,000-200,000 SHU

As the name suggests, these peppers are from Jamaica, but have become popular around the world. There are a few varieties of Jamaican hot peppers:

The Jamaican Hot Chocolate Pepper matures to a rich brown color with ribbed and wrinkled skin. They grow to about 2 inches and have a very spicy Caribbean flavor. They are great for use in hot sauces and marinades.

The Jamaican Hot Red or Yellow Pepper is squash-shaped with thinner skin and matures to a bright yellow or red. The red is slightly spicier than the other two varieties. These can be pickled or even eaten fresh, if you can get past the intense heat.

Great for use in sauces, salsas and marinades.
