    Also known as (Cumari, Pimenta Cumari). Residing from the Cumari region of Brazil, this rare Brazilian fiery hot pepper is only the size of a pea. There are several types in the family, including the Cumari Do Para, one of the most popular (shown), the Cumari Ou Passarinho, Cumari Se Crescente, and Cumari Verdadeira. However, there is only one that belongs to the Capsicum Praetermissium species, the one true Cumari, the Cumari Pollux.

    TASTE: In the same family as Scotch Bonnets, and Habaneros, the Cumari has a really nice, sweet flavor but packs a lot of heat.
