    Fatalii Chilli Seeds

    Fatalii Chilli Pepper Seeds

    This Chilli is no mug and the Fatalii (Capsicum Chinese) packs a punch on the Scoville Heat Rating Scale of between 125,000 – 325,000. This chilli that originates in Central and Southern Africa.

    These chillies have a flavour which is fruity and citrusy and it has a searing heat that is comparably hotter to the standard habanero. Fatalii is a distant Habañero relative (a kind of estranged brother) and the fruit matures to bright yellow and is long, wrinkled and tapers to a point – about 2 to 3 inches long.

    The plants produce lots of peppers – they start producing early and finish late. The chillies start with a pale green and they mature to a bright yellow (there are red Fataliis around as well, but the yellow one is the “real deal”)
