For comparison, most jalapeño peppers have a heat rating of 2,500 to 8,000 on the Scoville scale.
These peppers are used to flavour many different dishes and cuisines worldwide and are often used in hot sauces and condiments.

A Scotch Bonnet is about 3.8cm in size and appears in the shape of a bonnet, the source of its name. It has four globular ridges at the bottom and is seen in bright red, orange, and yellow.
The shape of this famous pepper is what inspired its name. In shape, the pepper with its squashed look appears like a Scotsman’s bonnet (called a Tam o’Shanter hat). Simple as that. Nothing else Scotch about this pepper, but it does have a name that’s hard to forget. It has other names, too, including the Bahama Mama, the Jamaican Hot, the Bahamian, and the Martinique pepper.
