**This is one of many chinese facing heaven chillies in the frutescens family of peppers. It should not be confused with the Habanero Paper Lantern – A chinense-type strain from south america, which just so happens to also be named for its chinese lantern-like shape.

***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.
