Jalapeno - bottom right, our mildest chilli, scoring 2,500 to 5,000 on the Scoville scale, most commonly used on pizza toppings (a chipotle is a smoked jalapeno).
Cayanetta - top left, a mild chilli, almost identical in appearance to the Ring Of Fire but with a rounded rather than pointed end, scoring 20,000 Scoville Heat Units.
Ring Of Fire - top right, the good old faithful of our chillies, scores 70,000 to 85,000 Scoville Heat Units.
Habanero - bottom left, my new favourite, hotter and tastier than the Ring Of Fire, measuring 100,000 to 350,000 on the Scoville scale.
All are available in our shop (and at farmers' markets) at only 10p each.
