The gracefully spreading branches of the bushy plants bear loads of small, teardrop-shaped fruit that measure 15 x 25mm. The fruit are red when mature and are modestly hot for a habanero. Given their size and heat level, they are perfect for pickling, which is one way they are used in Brazil. Though the bushy plants can be quite substantial, they grow brilliantly in pots as small as 20cm in diameter.
Of Brazilian origin, this chilli also goes by the names "pimenta de bico", "biquinho" and "chupetinha". There is also a sweet pepper (no heat whatsoever) that is identical in appearance to Chupetinha called "Pearl".
