Tiny but mighty!

Tiny but mighty


Macro Mondays theme: Hot or Cold


Red Thai Chili Peppers with red chili pepper flakes sprinkled on a porcelain plate. The average length of these tiny but mighty peppers is from 1/2 to 3 inches in length.


“These chilies fall in the range of “pretty darn hot”, which in more scientific terms means around 50,000 to 100,000 Scoville heat units. That’s about 23 times the average heat of a jalapeño. But really they are at the bottom rung of what you’d call the hot peppers. They are typically about 3 times less spicy than a habanero, so if you’re venturing into the hot pepper level for the first time, a stop off at Thai peppers is good way to travel.”
