Giggle away. Its ok. Thats the nature of the peter pepper. When you see it, you cant ignore its shape? It looks like a mans penis. Theres a reason its called peter pepper, as well as Chilly Willy and simply penis pepper, too.

But once you get past the laughs, theres a pretty significant hot pepper here hotter than a jalapeƱo. In fact, its a terrific alternative to a serrano pepper, if you can find it available near you.

How hot is the peter pepper?

It fits squarely in the medium-hot level of the pepper scale 10,000 to 23,000 Scoville heat units. in fact, it parallels the serrano pepper quite well in terms of overall pungency. That puts it about near equal heat to nine times hotter than a jalapeƱo, depending on the strength of each pepper measured. But its fair to say that the mildest peter pepper will always closely mirror the hottest possible jalapeƱo.

So, the shape

Yeah. It cant be ignored. The peter pepper is aptly named, with a long conical shape and a bulbous end that shares an uncanny resemblance to a penis. The pepper grows to four to six inches long, even putting it in-line with the average length of the typical member too. It ripens from green to a shock-red, adding even more to one of the greatest natural gags around.

This is obviously a chili that is polarizing. Its definitely not a pepper for conservative company, but for those that enjoy some low-brow humour its a gem of a chili to pull out among mixed company.
