Scotch bonnet chilli, also known as bonney peppers, or Caribbean red peppers, is a variety of chili pepper named for its resemblance to a tam o’ shanter hat.  It can be found throughout West Africa.

However, completely sweet varieties of Scotch bonnet called cachucha peppers are grown on some of the Caribbean islands.  These peppers are used to flavour many different dishes and cuisines worldwide and are often used in hot sauces and condiments.
