Scoville Heat Units: 5,000-30,000 SHU

This very interesting little chili makes a great conversation piece in the garden or in the kitchen due to its distinctively phallic shape, hence its name. It grows to about 3-4 inches long and 1-1.5 inches wide, and matures to a bright red. Originally from Texas and Louisiana, they are grown commercially and seeds can be obtained through private companies. They are great for salsas!
