Scotch Bonnet pepper is a type of chili pepper that is popular in Caribbean cuisine. It is similar in appearance to the habanero pepper, with a distinctively round and plump shape, often with a nipple-like tip at the stem end. The skin is smooth and glossy, and the color can range from green to yellow to orange to red, depending on the ripeness of the pepper.

Scotch Bonnet pepper is known for its high heat level, which ranges from 100,000 to 350,000 on the Scoville scale, making it one of the hottest peppers in the world. The heat is accompanied by a fruity and slightly sweet flavor, which is why it is often used in spicy Caribbean dishes such as jerk chicken, curries, and hot sauces.

Scotch Bonnet pepper is an excellent source of vitamins A and C, as well as potassium and dietary fiber. It is also believed to have health benefits, such as reducing inflammation, improving digestion, and boosting the immune system. However, it should be consumed in moderation, as excessive consumption can cause stomach upset and other health problems.
