Scoville Heat Units: 1.47 Million Average SHU
Sauce Strength Rating*: Record – 10/11
Colour: Slightly Pinkish Red
Ripe Flavour: Gentle, mellowed out red chilli with peppery notes. I find that a bitter or sour element tends to acompany this pepper’s heat but it appears to be genetic. Those who don’t experience it tend to find the Primo quite sweet. Its taste is similar to, yet not the same as, that of the carolina reaper.
Green Flavour: ???

*This value represents the heat rating that I would expect to give to a sauce using this pepper as its main ingredient. Other ingredients or particularly high purity may result in a slightly stronger sauce, while lower concentrations will yeild a weaker one and other products may vary.
