Description

Capsicum chinense

Probably of Brazilian origin, this chilli also goes by the names "pimenta de bico", "biquinho" and "chupetinha".  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 plants are by no means compact, they grow brilliantly in pots as small as 20cm in diameter.

Approximate number of seed per pack: 20
