Capsicum chinense 'Carbonero'

Pepper, Hot

A smaller Bhut Jolokia shaped pepper that is bright orange in color. The Carbonero flavor is fruity sweet and heat level is medium habanero level (200,000+ SU). As of 2016 some smaller sauce makers are experimenting with making sauces that feature the Orange Carbonero chile. As of 2017 this cross is about 4 to 5 years old so there will be variations in size and shape of pepper pods. The Carbanero chile plants grow just over 4 feet tall.
