The Scotch Bonnet is the Habanero's smaller cousin. Originating in Trinidad, Tobago and now widely used in all of the Caribbean due to its intense heat but with an exceptionally tropical-fruity taste which some people say is reminiscent of apricots, apples and cherries.

 

Smooth, waxy to the touch, pods are about 1.5 inches in size and have an irregular, squat shape with 4-5 ridged lobes. The thin, smooth skin has a waxy sheen and changes from green to red when mature. Fruits have a very thin outer wall, making them particularly well-suited to drying.

 

It is used daily in Jamaican cuisine where it is an essential ingredient in Jamaican jerk chicken, seafood, ceviche, soups, stews, curries, or rice and peas.

 

The fruity favor pairs exceedingly well in dishes such as mango or papaya salsas, grilled pork or fish.

Michigan Heirlooms went SOLAR!

 

I had been wanting to utilize some alternative energy source for years. One day, I saw an ad on Facebook sponsored by PowerHome Solar & Roofing and I clicked on it. I couldn't have imagined where that simple click was going to take me.

Zero out of pocket expense.

91% of the entire properties electrical use manufactured right in my backyard.

Not every home qualifies, but if you are even slightly interested in learning if your home does, please click the link below which will redirect you to a new page and have the best salesman I have ever met give you a call. His name is James Johns and you have my word that he is ethical, honest and sincere.

Yes, I will get a referral bonus if you end up purchasing. But guess what? SO WILL YOU!
