SCOVILLE HEAT UNITS ~ 60.000 Common in many cuisines, chili peppers are used to add heat and flavor. Whether you grate it over risottos, pastas or tacos, chili gives every dish a fiery aroma. But not all of them are as hot as many people think. Chili peppers belong to the paprika family [Capsicum] and the exclusive yellow AMAZON CHILI [Capsicum Annuum] adds a milder fruity note to your dish. Our yellow amazon chili grows in Colombia. It belongs to the sharper but not extreme group of chilies with 50.000-70.000 Scoville heat units. Amazon chilies are harvested just before full ripeness, that’s why they are yellow. Refine your soups, meat dishes and dips with this grated delight.
