The Safi chilli is an African strain of Scotch bonnet with a high level of pungency and flavour. The plant is 60-80cm (24-31in) high, with dense medium green foliage. The pods are a globular-square shape with a dented surface and measure approximately 5cm (2in) long by 4cm (1½in) in diameter. One of the brightest red chillies available when mature, the pods initially start off light green.[1]
