Scotch Bonnet

What makes the Scotch Bonnet different from the Habanero?

Scotch Bonnet is one of the key ingredients in the Jamaican Jerk sauces,seasons, or rubs.

These two peppers are both small and have a smooth, waxy touch, however have subtle differences. A Scotch Bonnet is about 1.5 inches 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 Habanero, on the other hand, is about an inch bigger and is an orange-red color.

The History
The Scotch Bonnet and Habanero are actually cousins! Both are a variety from the Capsicum Chinese chili plant. However the Habanero was domesticated in the Amazons and eventually found its way to Mexico and South America, where it is most popular. The Scotch Bonnet is of Jamaican origin and most common in Caribbean foods. The Habanero is more commonly found in supermarkets, whereas the Scotch Bonnet might be harder to find, unless you live in a community with a strong Caribbean presence.
