The Scotch Bonnet originated in the Caribbeans and is also their most popular hot pepper. The squashed look of the pepper is the reasoning for the name. Scotch Bonnets come in a variety of colors with the red scotch bonnet being one of the more popular varieties. The red scotch bonnet is great for growing in containers. This is a very hot pepper with a fruity and smoky flavor, which makes it perfect for Caribbean dishes and hot sauces.
