Kambuzi pepper is a small round shaped chili found in different colors ranging from pale yellow to bright red and orange. The peppers are beautiful and therefore often used for salad and sandwich decoration. In flavor, they are compared to the habaneros but rate much lower on the Scoville Scale. Habanero chili peppers are thought to be the hottest peppers in the world. Kambuzi chili peppers are sometimes referred to as Malawian peppers because they are believed to be originated in Malawi, a country in southeast Africa. Their exact rating on the Scoville Scale is not known as very little information is available on this type of hot chili pepper.
Usually peppers of small size are extremely hot. They are used in cooking by discarding their seeds and the inner membrane. In shape, the kambuzi can be compared to a cherry pepper, which rates around 100 to 500 heat units on the Scoville Scale, with a smooth and well-textured skin. The exact taste of this chili is not widely known because it is rarely found in the world. The internet has made it possible for chili lovers to discuss various varieties of hot chili peppers based on their experience of cultivating them or using them in their cooking.
