The Wiri Wiri chilli is very strong, about 100,000 to 150,000 SHU. This red and round chilli looks a bit like a cherry so is often called "cherry chilli". It is a cousin of the Cayenne chilli pepper from Guyana and is a member of the “Capsicum Frutescens” species.
It has surprising aromas of tomato and excellent organoleptic properties, but due to its very strong spiciness must be used sparingly. It is perfect for enhancing stews, soups, fajitas and sauces.
