Quite a few stories are told about the Burkina Yellow that should not taking it too literally.
This very tasty and very hot Capsicum chinense is named after the West African country of Burkina Faso, but it is doubtful whether that is the real origin of the Burkina Yellow. After all, all chili peppers come from the American continent.
The Burkina Yellow is variously thought of as a variant of the Scotch Bonnet or the Habanero, but these Caribbean chilies are closely related. However, the Burkina Yelow lacks the remarkable shape of the Scotch Bonnet and thus looks much more like a Habanero.
But the Burkina Yellow is definitely a nice addition for a chili pepper lover, because the plant produces a rich harvest after about 80 to 100 days. The chili peppers color from light green to bright yellow and are about two inches long and four inches across.
In terms of heat, this strain scores about the same as the Habanero and Scotch Bonnet.
