The yellow Fatalii is a well-loved heirloom chilli from Africa. It is thought to be a relative of the Habanero.
It has a rich fruity, citrus flavour which makes it popular in cooking. It is very hot, measuring in between 100,000 to 400,000 Scoville Heat Units and its burn is quick onset - you'll immediately taste (and feel) it!
Here at Chilli Seed Bank, we think the fatalii is significantly hotter than the habanero, and despite not measuring up to the 'super-hots' in terms of SHU, we've found these chillis extremely painful to deseed due to their high oil content! Don't say you weren't warned!
There is also a red and chocolate fatalii variety, though only the yellow is an heirloom.
Warning: Extremely hot! This chilli will not discriminate. Under no circumstances should one of these chillies be left with an unwitting person, especially a child.
