  • The sister of the Tabasco chili pepper - with beautiful yellow color

    The Amazonian pepper "whole" comes from Colombia and is very hot. It is among the of the sharpest chilis we use in Europe. This chili has fruity notes and a subtle acidity. It is immediately reminiscent of the hot Tabasco pepper. In fact, both peppers also belong to the same species: the "Capsicum Frutescens".

    This Amazon chili is the sister of the Tabasco pepper.

    This chili, of course, takes its name from the mythical river that flows through the harvest region: the Amazon.

    Whole chilis with beautiful color

    The Amazon chili is distinguished by its color. These peppers are a beautiful light yellow. In fact, Amazon chilis are harvested before they are ripe. They are harvested shortly before optimal ripeness, before they turn red.

    Subtle drying preserves this color and all its organoleptic properties. Because of its color, this chili is also popular with BBQ'ers.

    So how hot are they? The bowl of Scoville

    More than 100 years ago, Mr. Scoville developed a scale for "spiciness" of chili peppers, based on taste tests. Since then, we can measure pretty precisely how much capsaicin a particular chili variety contains: the more of that substance a pepper contains, the hotter they are.

    That amount of capsaicin is expressed in "Scoville Heat Units " or SHUs.

    The Amazonian pepper is strong, reaching 50,000 to 70,000 SHU. That's obviously quite spicy, but still not comparable to, say, our habanero chili varieties.

    Usage of Amazon chili whole

    Use Amazonia chili peppers whole to spice up salsas, spicy sauces or salad dressings. Always use the pepper in moderation and add little by little.

    It is important to note that chilies of this intensity show their power especially during cooking. The longer a chili pepper cooks with you, the hotter the dish becomes. Therefore, you can add a chili earlier or later in cooking, depending on how sharp you like it.
