Tender Annual Have the whole milk ready, this is one of the hottest peppers in the world. Scotch Bonnets, also called Jamaican peppers, score right next to Habaneros in terms of heat. These small, thin skinned, peppers are shaped like a patty pan squash and grow to about 3/4" long and 1-1/2" wide. This is a favorite pepper for Caribbean cuisine, making hot sauce, and for drying.
