I believe Scotch bonnetts and Habaneros are one in the same, just depends on where they come from. At least the scotch bonnets in Jamaica look and taste exactly the same as the habaneros here.

I myself enjoy all the peppers.
For Immissing. In San Marcos the cafe next to the Green Parrot makes a fantastic southwestern omlett. Chilies and all it the perfect sunday morning feast!

I read it on the internet so it must be true.

Nope, scotch bonnetts and habaneros are not the same thing.

Nothing did any good. At 9 p.m. I ran into San Pedro Town, desperate for help. I found an open pharmacy and told the clerk, in my limited Spanish, about the dinner disaster and the mean, mean peppers. The pharmacist identified them. "Si, habaneros."

Anybody else see something odd in this paragraph from the story?

I've already told you more than I know.

Scotch bonnets and habaneros really are the same species of chile. They are shaped and colored differently depending on where they have been grown, which genetically determines their shape/color outcome.

"The Scotch bonnet is often compared to the habanero since they are two varieties of the same species but have different pod types. Both the Scotch bonnet and the habanero have the characteristic thin, waxy flesh. They have a similar heat level and flavor. Although both varieties average around the same level of heat, the actual degree of "heat" varies greatly with genetics, growing methods, climate, and plant stress." from Wikipedia.

So now I know they are different, but still don't know what the difference is. (they look the same on wikipedia) I'll stick to jalepenos anyway.

at least jalepenos are edible, those other dam* things should be used at Git Mo! One rectal dose of that oughta do it! (Uh oh...can o' worms?) wink laugh
