A small-fruited Brazilian beauty producing an abundance of teardrop-shaped fruit with almost no heat.
Heat level: very mild
(approx. 50 SHU)
This Brazilian beauty produces an abundance of tear drop-shaped fruit that are only 2cm long and ripen from light green to bright red. With an almost undetectable level of heat, a crunchy texture and a distinctive flavour, they are a treat eaten fresh off the plant. You can also add them to stir fries, or pickle them in a sweet-and-sour syrup made from sugar and cider vinegar.
The tidy, bushy plants can be grown unsupported in 2 to 7.5 litre pots. They are late to mature and should be kept undercover throughout the growing season.
Heat level: very mild (approx. 50 SHU)
