Habanero and Scotch Bonnet are the most commonly grown varieties of the pepper species Capsicum chinense. This species comes in many forms of pods ranging from round, top-shaped, long, or lantern-shaped. Colors can range from white, yellow, orange, red, and brown when ripe.
The red Capsicum chinense pods are known as Scotch Bonnet. Habanero is the name usually used for the orange lantern-shaped pods. The Habanero when ripe or dried and powdered has a unique apricot scent.
In Trinidad almost all peppersauces are made from these peppers- the hottest peppers in the world !
