Hi MA
Great looking crop.

I received some free fresh chillies grown by a neighbours mate on their allotment
Said they are very hot Trinidads, look a bit like Naga to me, but rated hotter.

Do you recognize them?



Tried a full one in a Jal Frezi and it was really fruity hot
edible and tasty, not just screaming HOT.

I was expecting that Caribbean Scotch Bonnet flavour, but no,
a much better fruity taste as well as the heat

Asked for more, (cheeky) so I can freeze them off

cheers Chewy

At a guess Chewy I would say they are a Habanero of some shape or form, maybe Paper Lantern , but most likely this One
They definately wont be naga heat levels, the smoothness of the pod itself is a give away, and they will certainly have a more fruity taste, making it a lot more edible and perfect for a Jalfrezi type curry, although I would still prefer the naga in mine  ;)

Thanks for the links / info Andy ;)

CP 321 - Trinidad Scorpion Red - CARDI
A definite match to what I received.

They are brilliant as Ive been looking for a new hot flavour
for some time, that has a distinctive flavour as opposed to
the same old scotch bonnet flavour you get in hot sauces etc.

I thought they looked a bit like the Naga I've bought before
Where I learnt the lesson of not taking a nibble. ::) ;D

Anyhoo, Can create some new Scorpion curries for winter warming.

Thanks again
cheers Chewy

Lots of fruit on this year.  Little birdseyes have a bit of bite.
