Last year I grew a Peri Peri which is a C. Frutescens. I don't think it had quite habanero heat, but it was a different kind of burn. Very prickly on the tongue and lips. They would be great in a stir fry. But they are a PITA to harvest because they are so abundant. Another thing is they are really seedy.

That's a hard call, They so small yet so hot. Not sure if any rank higher than 100k but Tepin, pequin, wild brazil, cumari do para are all good.

Have grown the cumari every year and it's one of my favorites. I was wondering how the wild brazil is and how to tell the difference between the two.

I like the wild brazil slightly better. Both are good though. There's a good flavor difference. Hard to describe. Some have described it as hot ass fruit loops. Not sure that's really that far off.

appearance wise they are pretty darn close. I wouldn't be able to tell the two pods apart most likely. I'll go pick one of each and take a picture.

One of those lil' round orange buggers in the box you sent me really lit me up, I think it was the orange wild brazil. Caught me off guard big time!

I have a Carolina Reaper x U/K... they grow about a quarter the aize of a reaper but pack about 75% of there heat... I also have a Moruga x FIrecracker that grows about the size of your fingertip that is about twice as hot as a habanero.. And I also have a Yellow Moruga x Brazilian starfish that grown about the size of a pea there very hot too.. But I cant say I have any standard hot varieties.

I love orange wild Brazil. Less aromatic and more fruity than wild Brazil/Cumari do para

not sure exactly how small your looking for but wiri wiri are fairly small  .    I see them listed most places ranging from 100k-350k  shu. comparable to scotch bonnet or ordinary habs but in truth  I generally find them to have slightly less heat than either of those.

Prik kee nu suan is a small Thai pepper and very hot but not much of a flavour other than a good burn. Prolific and easy to grow.

They are chinenses with typical chinense picante and taste.
