These were discovered or should I say exposed to the Chilli pepper world by the “Chilli Queen” Beth Boyd of Houston, Texas. Beth also known as the Aji Queen saw these Yellow Scotch Bonnets at a market called Foodarama. She then grew out for a time selecting the best. Beth passed away in 2014 at the young age of 55 but left us with many varieties like the Foodarama Scotch Bonnet as her legacy.
There is also a natural Red variant of the Foodarama Scotch Bonnet. The Foodarama Scotch Bonnet Red is absolutely delicious and fruity with a habanero heat level. It has a higher heat level than the original Yellow type. It has the flying saucer or bonnet like shape in most of the peppers but will have some variations. The Foodarama Scotch Bonnet chilli plants grow over 4 feet tall.
